If you have download problems, try setting FAILOVER_FETCH:
# make help topic=FAILOVER_FETCH
===> mk/defaults/mk.conf (keywords: FAILOVER_FETCH):
# Perform a checksum at "make fetch" time.  If the checksum doesn't
# match the stored value, try to retrieve the file from the next site
# in the list
# Possible:  defined, not defined
# Default: not defined

Hope this helps,
