I'm aware of that, which is why I pointed out that most of them
fetched from the first site that "make fetch" attempted.  Of course
that would not be a FreeBSD _mirror_ (although in a few cases it is
somewhere under
-- I take it those particular ports are FreeBSD-hosted).

As just one example, the first site attempted for net/netscript
was and the distfile was found there.
