Hi Ruel,

Can you please verify that:
1. Internet is accessible. Try:
ftp ftp.iasi.roedu.net

2. Your ports tree is up to date. 

After this is done, remove the directory /usr/ports/distfiles/KDE/ .

Then do:

cd /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/qt33/
make fetch

If this still results in an error, try this instead of "make fetch":
make MASTER_SITE_OVERRIDE=ftp://ftp.iasi.roedu.net/mirrors/ftp.trolltech.com/qt/source/ fetch
make MASTER_SITE_OVERRIDE=ftp://ftp.fu-berlin.de/unix/X11/gui/Qt/source/ fetch

These are mirrors taken from /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.siteis.mk . Search for MASTER_SITE_QT in that file.
