become root
cd /usr/pkgsrc/www/communicator
make (or make fetch-list | sh)
At the end of fetching (ftp says: 100% |***| 14635 KB ...KB/s 00:00 ETA)
the make-command hangs (i.e nothings happens anymore for hours).
The ftp-process is in netio-wait state; if you kill -HUP
(or stronger) it, a new fetch is started from a mirror.
Mirrors used sofar:,,
Specific circumstances that might be relevant: the fetch is done over
a ppp-link to a Linux (SuSE 6.1) system doing masquerading (which
works perfectly for more then a year now) at 115200 Kbaud.

Try it again (i.e it is 100% reproducible)
