Ticket #31987 (closed defect: invalid)
netpbm install tries to fetch nonexistent file

Description (last modified by ryandesign@…) (diff)
I am trying to install netpbm through macports, however it fails with the message:
Error: Target org.macports.fetch returned: Subversion check out failed
After inspecting the log file (attached) it seems to me the problem lies in that mac ports is trying to fetch the file: netpbm-10.47.31_0.darwin_10.x86_64.tgz from http://packages.macports.org/netpbm/ and gets a 404 error
The actual file at that location is a different type of archive, using the file extension tbz2.
I am new to using MacPorts and I was wondering if there is any quick and dirty way to change the archive MacPorts looks for when I type the command "port install netpbm"
I have just updated MacPorts definitions using "port selfupdate" so it seems to me that this is a bug.
Thanks in advance!
