I remember to have read that they changed their login interface, and
thus fetchyahoo needs to be updated.

A PR is already in the queue, but since the ports tree is currently
frozen, the update will take some time to take place.


If you are very impatienty, you can try the following:

Edit the ports makefile, and change PORTVERSION to 2.8.6.
Now run `make makesum && make build' and see if it works.

No guarantees, of course... ;-)
