You should send your questions to the list rather than me personally.
Chances are good someone else out there can answer better than I can.
In this case that would be true.
Maybe you just accidently missed using the group reply (reply all).

Well, you have to go in to the Makefiles and find out where is was
trying to get that chunk and then go their your self with ftp or
find another site for it.
Actually, I usually just try again later and find that it then
does everything OK - there was just something temporarily down
when I was trying before. But, in some cases you really do have
to go and do something special.
Also, post to the list, because someone else out there probably
has already solved that same problem. I haven't had any trouble
