That's still not broken nor unfetchable.

Pretty cool, however now users are unable to install these ports
while they are perfectly installable.

I suggest to change BROKEN to something like MASTER_SITES_DEAD and
either state that we mirror distfiles forever or find another mirror
(which would be way too strange since we mirror distfiles forever
anyway). I could suggest my own, however it only
has 150 MB free space left, and I'm not sure all ports with dead
master sites will fit. Gotta check though.
