I am trying to use portsnap for the first time and have a "snapshot
corrupt" error:

1. Installed portsnap as
#pkg_add -r portsnap

2.  Copied sample config file to config file

3.  Run portsnap as follows and receive the error message shown.
mail# portsnap fetch
Looking up portsnap.FreeBSD.org mirrors... none found.
Fetching snapshot tag... done.
Fetching snapshot metadata... done.

-- end

Would anyone have any ideas of what I can do to have portsnap work?
