Guys, these reports are useless without the information that I
asked for:

While 'portmaster -F' is 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.

Neither I nor others who have replied to this thread can reproduce the
problem you're seeing, and that is some of the oldest code in
portmaster, so I strongly suspect that there is some problem in your
environment that is causing this. In any case, I can't debug the problem
without the information in the paragraph above.
