I was just hoping there was a way to fix it that would allow the tar balls to be produced by the buildbots. I guess not, short of install macports there as per the link below, or fixing the low broken dist file mirroring…

These aren't tarballs we produce. They are tarballs the developers produce. We should mirror them, but per the ticket, we don't. I intend to work on this and other server issues soon. There is an order of operations I should follow, and enabling mirroring is not the first step.
