	"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 probably...
