 I am trying to install netpbm through macports, however it fails with the

 "Error: Target org.macports.fetch returned: Subversion check out failed"

 After inspecting the log file (attached) it seems to me the problem lies
 in that mac ports is trying to fetch the file:
 and gets a 404 error

 The actual file at that location is a different type of archive, using the
 file extension tbz2.

 I am new to using MacPorts and I was wondering if there is any quick and
 dirty way to change the archive MacPorts looks for when I type the command
 "port install netpbm"

 I have just updated MacPorts definitions using "port selfupdate" so it
 seems to me that this is a bug.

 Thanks in advance!
