The distfiles of the 2 ports concerned fetch fine without the 
FETCH_DEPENDS, the case of net/p5-Net-SSH-Perl it wants to install its 
BUILD_DEPENDS before it fetches, I've yet to work out why. The other port 
concerned misc/linux-opengroupware installs postgres, apache, bash and 
gmake as FETCH_DEPENDS, neither of the 2 cases need to install anything to 
fetch the distfile.
