As part of the checking to make sure that the source you download is valid,
the ports system keeps a number of metrics about the source files. This
includes an MD5 checksum and the size of the source file. In the case below,
the size is sleightly off (by 2 whole bytes). This is causing the ports
system to try a different location for the source file.
My guess is that you choose a bad time for your last cvsup and if you run
cvsup again, everything will work right. On the other hand it could be that
the Mozilla folks had to re-build their source file for that product and it
came out 2 bytes smaller this time. Again, a cvsup may fix the error for you.
The ports maintainers are ususally pretty quick about these things.
