Safari on Tiger can access GitHub, but not MacPorts' new servers, because MacPorts' new servers use SNI which Safari on Tiger does not understand. You can work around this problem by using a more modern browser, such as TenFourFox.

We don't rely on just one server; we have a network of mirrors, in addition to the original upstream server(s). The problem is that we are not automatically mirroring distfiles, ever since moving off macOS Forge. It's on my to do list and is tracked at https://trac.macports.org/ticket/53347 . But I've manually mirrored this distfile for you now, and it should show up on our mirror network soon.
