Obviously, the script that checks & generates this list can only go by
what information is available when it runs.  The nature of the Internet
is such that http/ftp servers go offline all the time for short periods
of time -- overloaded, network problems, hardware problems, etc.  It's
rather likely that quite a few ports will happen to have transient fetch
errors at the time when the distfile check is done.  

If the errors are not real then obviously it's really easy to fix them
