Uh, yeah, this was a pain in the bum to get sorted.

Pulling the distfile works fine from the port; the real download URL is:

http://flyspray.rocks.cc/?file=flyspray-0.9.4.tar.gz

Portlint threw hissy fits about this URL, so it was necessary to 
re-define the "do-fetch" target in the Makefile to shut it up.  This is 
obviously confusing the distfile download survey code.

But the most important thing is that the port works correctly.
