As I already told, "portmaster -F" is fetching to /usr/ports/distfiles 
and appending to fetchlog in /tmp

But "portmaster -i" does this not!

I have erased the ports tree and extracted from portsnap. Reinstalled 
portmaster, checked my make.conf and several other things. I am thankful 
for any hint.

RANDOMIZE_MASTER_SITES=yes does not help.

The system runs since several years without problems, portmaster worked 
until several weeks. Probably Upgrade from 7.4 to 8.3 makes the problem, 
but I have several other systems upgraded the same way and portmaster 
works fine.
