I didn't see any problems with the unixheads mirror. The .db.tar.gz
has patch in it, and the patch package downloads fine manually.

nethat appears to be non-working anymore (requires password), but it
may be temporary. Some mirrors do that when they are adding drives or
some such (to reduce io load during a raid mirror). If it still fails
in a day or two (requires password), then we should probably remove it
as a mirror.
