OK, I've got to take most of this back.  This could be correct, but
probably isn't.

It looks like I botched the 7.0.1 upgrade fairly badly by not checking
the downloads thuroughly and as a result the URL was bogus.  It only
appears to work if you already had the old distfile around.  I'm
currently packing for a trip, but will try to get the port upgraded
correctly in the next day or two.

Sorry for the confusion.
