In this case you could remove the mirror from the Makefile
or set MASTER_SITE_OVERRIDE to one of the working ones.

If you don't "make clean" and the port is already built it will not
try to build again, even if the port was updated since.
Thus a make clean is required.

You might want to use sysutils/portupgrade to install/manage ports.
It will automatically do much of the required stuff for ports.
