I can see the tarball clearly still exists on ``, but `port -b install` from a local ports dir complains about `Error: Failed to archivefetch libgcc11: Binary-only mode requested with no usable archive sites configured`, what gives?

You would have to modify (backdate) the Portfile in the main ports tree, not in a local ports dir.


I find this unexpected as well but that's what it is for now.
