I should probably have pointed out that this problem persisted across
multiple days.  I ignored it the first time that portupgrade failed,
pursued it when it persisted.  I didn't keep notes (personal box) so
don't know which day it first failed.

Is there any harm to using the http variant too?  Perhaps after the ftp
schema item?
