I'd like to download pciids-20140916.tar.xz from distfiles. This is a 
trick question!

I'm trying to build X11/xorg (it was bound to happen) and it crunches 
out with:

=> Attempting to fetch 
http://distcache.FreeBSD.org/ports-distfiles/pciids-20140916.tar.xz: Not 

(and similar messages for several mirrors).

It's correct. I definitely can't find the file manually. I know the 
system has moved from FTP to http - I've read the readme.txt files in 
the old locations telling me where to go (in the nicest possible way). 
But I can't find my file. It doesn't help to get "403 forbidden" when 
you try to get a directory listing from the various mirrors so I can 
tell what IS there. In the old days this would normally yield a clue.

I'd be surprised if this file has been superseded; and yes, I am using 
the very latest ports tree.

I'm now a bit stuck for what else to try. Ideas? Wait and see?

Thanks, Frank.
