Sorry for not posting a follow-up to my original request for help, but
google mail doesn't show messages sent from me until someone responds.
 As I was thinking about the problem, I noticed that the fetch
directive for "make fetchindex" in /usr/ports was trying to get the
file from htt://  Well, I realized
that our IT structure here is for a proxy server for http stuff.
After reading through the manual pages for fetch(8) and fetch(3) I

setenv HTTP_PROXY <URL for our proxy>

and walla, everything worked.  So, problem solved.
