These don't return anything.

I am unable to use fetch to download the packages over ftp, but wget works just
peachy over ftp. I don't have any gui clients, but firefox seems to work
without a hitch as well.

I'm currently in the process of rebuilding world to track 6 STABLE, in hopes
that it will do some good. I'll give your workarounds a shot, it sure beats
manually grabbing packages. Every little bit helps!
