Deadlines that rely on third parties are the best.

Anyways, a few other options from macports.conf:
 * FTP_PROXY env seems to be supported
 * proxy_ftp can be set in macports.conf
 * macports.conf also has a host_blacklist for bad FTP hosts which MacPorts will then skip
 * and the opposite, a preferred_hosts list
