 MacPorts servers. I incorporated my fix for this bug, plus changes to the
 portfile to download the latest `fetchmail 6.5.0` beta (beta7). MacPorts'
 `fetchmail-devel` is still at beta5.

 portfile can't download anything from the Sourceforge mirrors. Sourceforge
 doesn't have a "fetchmail-devel" -- only different branches of
