I managed to get a system set up based on portsnap a few days later,
only to realize it was on the wrong server which in fact doesn't serve
www.freebsd.org... doh.

Anyway, it's fixed as of today fully based on portmgr based INDEX
build. It's also now not served of www.FreeBSD.org which was a bit
ugly IMO, but a HTTP redirect makes 'make fetchindex' work.

PS. should people be so inclined, you can now also get it via rsync
from rsync://bit0.us-west.freebsd.org/FreeBSD-bit/ports-index/ .
