 I am aware of the problem. It presumably affects not just netpbm but the
 handful of ports that fetch from SourceForge svn. I was going to wait a
 while to see if the situation changes, since SourceForge has been having a
 variety of intermittent errors and it's hard to know which errors are
 transient and will resolve themselves and which are intentional and
 permanent. I recently changed the fetching of these ports from https to
 http because SourceForge has new https security restrictions for svn
 repositories that make it unusable to MacPorts on OS X El Capitan and
 earlier. We need a solution that works everywhere. For netpbm, I'm looking
 into fetching from a GitHub mirror instead. I haven't looked into the
 options available for the other ports yet.
