I was wondered since I don't like ports. A part of my work I do at home
were I have very weak connection via dialup (< 24kbps) and even at work
I have to fight with problems with fetch from ftp due to firewall
So probably its time to check more thoroughly why I have problems with
my proxy :-)
May be I also should check some docs, probably it is possible to type smth
and get a list of files that I need to download at work manualy and put them
into distfiles at home ...
