Can you try running fetch or the ftp command on the URL the port attempts to 
download by hand?  If that doesn't work, you'll need to solve that problem 
before the ports tree can download stuff automaticly.

My guess is that you're missing an /etc/resolv.conf which points to valid 
nameservers, but it would help to quote an error message...
