Argh. Forget it, I should have tested it also on the ports
that do fetch their distfiles. The same gets printed for
other ports, even though in this case the 
=> Attempting to fetch from ... 
gets printed and the distfile fetched. No hanging on random as
already reported.

I need to get a deeper knowledge of Makefile syntax and of
the internals of 

I'm still stucked trying to get the actual command line that
causes random(6) to hang. Either I'm failing to quote
appropriately the expression, or that line should be
introduced somewhere else.
