'port fetch' checks first if the distfile exists in $filespath and does 
not fetch it to $distpath if it exists there. So 'port fetch' was able 
to work with a distfile in $filespath, but 'port extract' was not.

I did this change for consistency. We could also remove the check for 
the distfile in $filespath in portfetch, but I think that would apply to 
patchfiles as well which are often in $filespath.
