Looks like some sort of network connectivity problem, probably
temporarily causing packet loss.  What a few hours and try again: with
luch either you'll get a different route through the Tor network
avoiding the problems, or the underlying cause will have been fixed.

Why not ftp://ftp.freebsd.org -- which will give you an FTP server close
to your exit point from tor ?

Plus I believe the deal now is that you should be using the 'Tor
browser' -- which is a copy of an older version of Firefox, with patches
and other anonymity stuff already built in, rather than the old method
of applying patches to a regular FF install.
