Patch for mirrorselect to respect previously defined BSDINSTALL_DISTSITE

Per bsdinstall man page for BSDINSTALL_DISTSITE: "Most targets (e.g. auto and
jail) that prompt for a FreeBSD mirror will skip that step if this variable is
already defined in the environment.". This is not happening and FreeBSD mirror
is prompted for.

To reproduce using FreeBSD 10.0 release:

for sh:

for csh:

Run the command and work through the menus.

Note how "Mirror Selection" appears. This should not happen.

What should happen is for "Mirror Selection" menu not appearing and
installation continues with bsdinstall fetching the required packages from the
provided BSDINSTALL_DISTSITE location.

Attached is a patch for mirrorselect to follow the documented behavior.
