> Done Ryan. Thanks. But for whatever reason, at the time I did update the Portfile, it seemed the website interface for CGAL fetched the file from this very directory. Hopefully the shortened form works, too.

Yes, based on the hostname I presume this project is hosted by an installation of GForge:


GForge evidently exclusively uses the download id to determine what to send you, and ignores anything you put after it. This also works:


Remember that whatever you put for master_sites, MacPorts will append the distfile name. So when you write "master_sites https://gforge.inria.fr/frs/download.php/file/34403/CGAL-4.5.1.tar.bz2", MacPorts will actually request the URL "https://gforge.inria.fr/frs/download.php/file/34403/CGAL-4.5.1.tar.bz2/CGAL-4.5.1.tar.bz2", which works because GForge is permissive like that, but there's no reason to do that either.
