I ran portupgrade on a server today, and snort was one of the ports that 
needed to be upgrade.  However, the upgrade fails.  Here's the error 

=> snort-2.4.4.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/.
=> Attempting to fetch from
fetch: Requested 
Range Not Satisfiable
=> Attempting to fetch from
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
=> Couldn't fetch it - please try to retrieve this
=> port manually into /usr/ports/distfiles/ and try again.
