14 My guess was that OP meant that Gentoo Mirrors don't seem to carry the
15 file, even if it is still directly downloadable?
17 Over here portage tries downloading it from mirrors first (naturally),
18 gets 404s and then goes for the real source. So, maybe OP has a gentoo
19 mirror available nearby (in network topology) and just wants to reduce
20 wasted international traffic?
