#16691 was never fixed. They updated the distfile 6 months ago, as  
you noted in the ticket, and the maintainer never updated the  
portfile to track that change.

The stopgap committed in r40782 to use our distfiles mirror first  
stopped working with MacPorts 1.7.0 which tries master_sites in ping  
order instead of the order listed in the portfile.

Since the maintainer has not responded to the issue, someone else  
should update the port. Don't forget to change dist_subdir to  
something new, e.g. ${name}/${version}_${revision}. Unless the old  
and new tarballs install identical software, the revision should also  
be bumped.
