Problem fetching a port with multiple distfiles

This is so weird I don't even know what to check or where to look

I am currently running 'make fetch' on a port which has quite a lot of 
distfiles (emulators/linux_base-suse-9.3). It fetches some of the 
distfiles and then goes into infinite loop. The loop consists of 
fetching some distfile, then an error message:
fetch: <number> : no such file or directory
and then fetching the same distfile again from a different mirror

Here, <number> is the size in bytes of the distfile just fetched.

If I ctrl+c out of this cycle and run 'make fetch' again, it proceeds to 
download some more distfiles until it goes into similar loop with some 
other distfile.

While I typed up this message, make fetch seems to have completed 
successfully. But this is still extremely puzzling.
