portmaster 3.13.13 real endless loop "Waiting on fetch & checksum..."

Ok, so do this ... remove the file from /usr/ports/distfiles, then go to
the port directory and type 'make checksum' and see if it works
properly. Then remove it again, and run 'portmaster -F'

While that's running in one window, keep an eye on /usr/ports/distfiles
and see if the file is being downloaded, and also keep an eye on the log
file in $TMPDIR to see if it is being appended to.

Also make sure that whatever directory you use for $TMPDIR (/tmp by
default) has permissions 1777, and is not mounted with odd options.
