For testing during development of new ports or updates, you can skip the mirrors
by using the following flag for the fetch action:

  $ sudo port fetch --no-mirrors

Note that this is a local flag that only works with fetch and cannot be
specified when the fetch phase is run as a dependency for any other action such
as checksum, build, or install.
