        The MASTER_SITE for wm/openbox seems to have temporarily moved.
        ftp (as used by pkgsrc) seems unable to deal with the http
        redirect that has been left at the old master site, and so is
        unable to fetch the file.   Because of this, no copy of the
        master file has found its way onto

        This was true for the previous upgrade (3.4.0) of openbox as it
        is for the current version (3.4.2).

        Attempt to "make fetch" (or checksum) in pkgsrc/wm/openbox
        is you don't have the distfile already.

        Expect to see something like ...

jade$ make fetch
=> Required installed package digest>=20010302: digest-20050731 found
=> Fetching openbox-3.4.2.tar.gz
=> Total size: 727411 bytes
ftp: Error retrieving file - `307 Temporary Redirect'
fetch: Unable to fetch expected file openbox-3.4.2.tar.gz
Trying 2001:4f8:1:c:230:48ff:fe31:43f2...
ftp: connect to address 2001:4f8:1:c:230:48ff:fe31:43f2: No route to host
Connected to

        followed by the typical banner noise that I won't
        include here, ending with ...

250 CWD command successful.
250 CWD command successful.
250 CWD command successful.

        (and then ftp's shutdown noise).

        The files exist at the redirected location, which according
        to my browser is the MASTER_SITE, so either I'm confused, or
        the problem really is that that site is detecting the client
        software version and decides that NetBSD's ftp is a robot
        crawwler and redicts it to oblivion...   (HTTP is a truly
        absurd protocol to be forced to use for file transfers!)

        So either change to use wget with the right options,
        to fake the client software ID or something, or perhaps
        just copy the distfile to manually using a
        browser or something which does handle the redirect (or
        avoids causing it).

        The distfile fetched passes the checksum test just fine, so
        thetre's no real difficulty getting the thing, this is just
        a minor annoyance, hence the non-critical/low/change-request
        nature of this PR rather than something more serious as a
