When selecting the BOOK option of the devel/subversion port, the installation process fails to download svn-book-html.tar.bz2. The file from the official website has the wrong size, so it tries to download it from an FreeBSD mirror, and fails again.

=> svn-book-html.tar.bz2 doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/subversion17.
=> Attempting to fetch http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.6/svn-book-html.tar.bz2
fetch: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.6/svn-book-html.tar.bz2: size mismatch: expected 443043, actual 443003
=> Attempting to fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/subversion17/svn-book-html.tar.bz2
fetch: ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/subversion17/svn-book-html.tar.bz2: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
=> Couldn't fetch it - please try to retrieve this
=> port manually into /usr/ports/distfiles/subversion17 and try again.
*** Error code 1

Intall the devel/subversion port with the BOOK option enabled.
