"make fetch" in pkgsrc fails to fetch some distfiles, either
because "blather is already included in your NetBSD distribution"
or because "blather is not available for NetBSD-$vers-$arch"
Neither of those should prevent the distfile from being fetched,
only from being compiled (for "make" "make install" (etc) the
check should be done, and I suspect is done, before the "fetch"
is started - "fetch" doesn't need to check again).
cd .../pkgsrc; make fetch; # watch what happens...
Sorry ... delete a few lines from bsd.pkg.mk probably...
