It looks like SourceForge now prohibits svn checkout using http URLs. I changed svn.url to https://svn.code.sf.net/p/netpbm/code/, and the installation succeeded.

I am aware of the problem. It presumably affects not just netpbm but the handful of ports that fetch from SourceForge svn. I was going to wait a while to see if the situation changes, since SourceForge has been having a variety of intermittent errors and it's hard to know which errors are transient and will resolve themselves and which are intentional and permanent. I recently changed the fetching of these ports from https to http because SourceForge has new https security restrictions for svn repositories that make it unusable to MacPorts on OS X El Capitan and earlier. We need a solution that works everywhere. For netpbm, I'm looking into fetching from a GitHub mirror instead. I haven't looked into the options available for the other ports yet.

Replying to mndavidoff:

It looks like SourceForge now prohibits svn checkout using http URLs.

It is working today, so it appears to have been a temporary problem.

netpbm: Fetch from GitHub mirror instead of SourceForge svn

Fetching from svn has been repeatedly problematic.
