fetch starts over

Hi all,
I'm sure this is known, but it seems fixable.  When trying to fetch a 
distfile, if it fails, then fetch overwrites it and starts from the begining.

Receiving gcc-core-3.1.1.tar.bz2 (10213865 bytes): 39% (ETA 41:01)  )
4000592 bytes transferred in 1584.6 seconds (2.47 kBps)
fetch: gcc-core-3.1.1.tar.bz2 appears to be truncated: 4000592/10213865 bytes

Receiving gcc-core-3.1.1.tar.bz2 (10213865 bytes): 1% (ETA 01:17:34)
108544 bytes transferred in 49.5 seconds (2.14 kBps)
fetch: transfer interrupted

A little painful on a connection that slow! 

It seems it wouldn't just be as simple as using -r or else that would have 
already been done.  Or am I missing something?  Is it that easy, or is there 
another way to fix it?

Anyway to set that would I just set FETCH_CMD= /usr/bin/fetch -r  in
