Unfortunately, the guys at planetmirror have thought of that: the client 
is redirected back to on the first download 
attempt (the next one succeeds, there must be some logic to allow 
download after the url starting with public has been accessed).

I guess I'll file a PR anyway, just with the suggestion of removing 
these sites. Unless there's something else I could try/test.

Here's how it looks (using portupgrade, but that's irrelevant), the next 
site on the list is tried:

=> Attempting to fetch from
Moved Temporarily
=> Attempting to fetch from
size unknown
size of remote file is not known
libbonoboui-2.18.0.tar.bz2                              25 kB   14 kBps
===>  Extracting for libbonoboui-2.18.0
=> MD5 Checksum mismatch for gnome/libbonoboui-2.18.0.tar.bz2.
=> SHA256 Checksum mismatch for gnome/libbonoboui-2.18.0.tar.bz2.
