The file should download from that server; it works for me. If it doesn't for you, perhaps there is some network problem between you and that server.

I know it is somewhere under /opt/local/var but do not know where to put it so it can be seen by port as being in place for the texlive compile sequence.

Put the file in /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/texlive-latex
