Ok, it moved automatically? It downloaded whatever the site had for me
with the same name as tar.gz.  So, may be my pkgtools are outdated? I
never installed anything from pkgtools. Or is there anything else I need
to do to get the behavior that you got?

In the flip side, the faulty URL (because of site having moved) may remain
hidden for long, if the tools default to netbsd mirror. Basically, unless
a license forces download from maintainer site, why not always default it
to netbsd site?
