Can you post a copy of the output? I'm using reflector and rankmirrors, and
I get this:
# 2010-08-12 15:33
# generated by reflector
# ranked by rankmirrors
Server = ftp://archlinux.c3sl.ufpr.br/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
Server = ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
Server = http://archlinux.c3sl.ufpr.br/$repo/os/$arch
Server = http://mirrors.kernel.org/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
Server = http://mirror.yandex.ru/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
These are obviously not reachable URLs, but pacman fills in $repo and $arch
from pacman.conf so it's working just fine for me.
