My apolgies for that absolutly crappy discription of the error I was
witnessing. Upon reading my post anew, I just do not know what hit me
posting that.

Anyways, I did not have a /etc/resolv.conf entry in my poudriere.conf,
as it has been working for some time without. The error was rather
byzanthine ... sometimes, the sources were fetched correctly, sometimes
not. Regrettably, I do not have any fetch error messages around any
more, so I cannot supply the information I should have included in my
first post. 

Anyways, setting the entry in poudriere.conf seems to have solved the
issue. Interesting how any fetching could have occured without ...

Thanks and cheers,
