Hi Daniel,
thanks for replying. Ports tries to install 4.2.8p9 and exits when it
can't find the distfile:
--->  Fetching distfiles for ntp
--->  Attempting to fetch ntp-4.2.8p9.tar.gz from
...other mirrors
--->  Attempting to fetch ntp-4.2.8p9.tar.gz from
Error: Failed to fetch ntp: The requested URL returned error: 404

How do I force it to install 4.2.8p8 instead please?
