Comment (by jmr at macports.org):

 Updated the patch to try svn.macports.org last, ping with only one packet,
 and use a 1-second timeout in the interest of speed. Slow mirrors won't be
 sorted in quite the correct order, but I don't think that that's a real
 problem. Working mirrors that just don't respond to ping will go last in
 any case, but again, things should still generally be better with the
 patch than without.

 It would be ideal to run all the pings in parallel, but I don't know how
 to do that.
