Actually, the download page also offers a "simplified release file
URL", whose format matches MASTER_SITE_OSDN.  The MASTE_SITE_OSDN
URL works for regular fetching, but fails for the "makesum" target,
which was what confused me.

This is a peculiarity of the MASTER_SITE_OSDN handling and the way
"makesum" is implemented.  I opened PR #270708 about that.
