It's possible to download directly from SourceForge. FreeBSD's /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.sites.mk contains this piece of code to construct a Makefile variable with the list of SourceForge mirrors: # List: http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Mirrors # Updated: 2013-03-25 .if !defined(IGNORE_MASTER_SITE_SOURCEFORGE) .for mirror in heanet sunet iweb switch freefr garr aarnet jaist master \ nchc ncu internode waix hivelocity superb-dca3 ufpr tenet \ netcologne ignum kent kaz MASTER_SITE_SOURCEFORGE+= \ http://${mirror}.dl.sourceforge.net/project/%SUBDIR%/ .endfor .endif This means one possible download location for gnuplot would be: http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/project/gnuplot/ Probably it would be a good idea to shuffle the mirrors, and maybe to try one mirror after the other in case one is failing. And the SourceForge mirror code could even go into an own CPAN module. Regards, Slaven

Thanks for this! I am deferring for now but will look at improving the download in a future version -- or would be glad to accept a patch. On Wed Oct 16 15:21:16 2013, SREZIC wrote:
