+1 from me, but can you elaborate on what you mean by "default"? I can
think of any of the following, want to make sure we are on the same

* pacman-mirrorlist package
* install ISO mirrorlist (completely omitted, or simply commented out?)
* unchecking FTP by default at https://www.archlinux.org/mirrorlist/
