pkgsrc: distfile fetching issues on a slow connection


I have noticed that when I am using a slow 3g Internet connection, some heavy distfiles are re-downloaded for many times during the standard "make install clean" procedure. The server could just terminate a connection, but looks like it is not my case: according to the logs, file is fetched completely.

A sample log:

150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for 'qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.4.tar.gz' (220388303 bytes). 100% |***************************************************************| 210 MiB 52.95 KiB/s 00:00 ETA

421 Service not available, remote server timed out. Connection closed.
    220388303 bytes received in  1:08:43 (52.18 KiB/s)
    ftp: No control connection for command
fetch: Unable to fetch expected file qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.4.tar.gz

And then it repeats.

What does the script await from the server after fetching and why it restarts the downloading even if the file has been fetched completely?
