fetch http://ftp.easysw.com/pub/cups/1.1.22/cups-1.1.22-source.tar.bz2
or fetch ftp://ftp2.easysw.com/pub/cups/1.1.22/cups-1.1.22-source.tar.bz2
or fetch ftp://ftp3.easysw.com/pub/cups/1.1.22/cups-1.1.22-source.tar.bz2

See /usr/ports/print/cups/Makefile.common.  My first problem was with
ftp.funet.fi, so the problem seems easy to reproduce.

I sent an email to the webmaster for easysw.com to ask him about the
SACK/linux question -- I'll let you know if he answers.
