There are still corrupted distfiles, for example net/balance:

sh -c 'for i in heanet aleron unc belnet umn; do echo -n $i ": "; fetch -o - -q -A http://$ | md5; done'
heanet : 69e72ccbcb3d397d569487e85663c01a
aleron : 69e72ccbcb3d397d569487e85663c01a
unc : 69e72ccbcb3d397d569487e85663c01a
belnet : ff84cf7e9cc784f13ea186125dd10a1d
umn : 69e72ccbcb3d397d569487e85663c01a

anyone objects to set MASTER_SITE_SOURCEFORGE to

until the problem goes away?
