What does this give:
openssl rsautl -pubin -inkey pub.ssl -verify < snapshot.ssl
You should get something like:
It seems like you are having a problem fetching the tag - can you ping

This is a separate issue due to bad DNS - the list of mirrors is obtained from:
host -t srv _http._tcp.portsnap.freebsd.org
and falls back to just portsnap.freebsd.org if it doesn't work.
