I'm trying to build the logcheck port on my FreeBSD 7.2 system.
	# uname -prs
	FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE amd64

Here's the error I get:
	# cd /usr/ports/security/logcheck/
	# make
	=> logcheck_1.2.54.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/.

	*** Error code 255
	Stop in /usr/ports/security/logcheck.

and that's all I get.

I've tried to mail the port maintainer(glarkin at FreeBSD.org), and the latest person that
built the Makefile (dan at freebsddiary.org) but neither address allowed my message through.

I've re-built (make deinstall && make reinstall) the
BUILD_DEPENDS(/usr/ports/texproc/docbook2man) and RUN_DEPENDS(/usr/ports/mail/procmail,
/usr/ports/shells/bash) but I still get the same error.

What more do I need to provide to help troubleshoot this error to allow logcheck to
