FreeBSD ports: 1 unfetchable distfiles: ftp/tnftpd

Hello, I have got automatically generated error at the end of this mail
about problems with fetching ftp/tnftpd, but it seems to me that it is
wrong - could you please look at it and find the real problem? All things
seems to be correct for me - portlint says that port "looks fine", make
fetch does work and direct fetch of
from does
work for me too - why is there Not checked? If I should add some mirror
sites, is it possible to use ".." in SUBDIR, like in following patch?
