If you can find the file on a faster site, you can download it and put it in
 /usr/ports/distfiles/rpm/i386/fedora/10/ and restart the OpenBox build, or
 you can put these two settings in /etc/make.conf:

MASTER_SITE_BACKUP?=3D    \
        ftp://ftp.uk.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/${DIST_SUBDIR}/

MASTER_SITE_OVERRIDE?=3D  ${MASTER_SITE_BACKUP}


Change the "uk" to point to a site near to your geographical location. With
these lines, your ports system will first look for distfiles on the FreeBSD
mirror site, and will only go to the MASTER_SITE in a port's Makefile if the
FreeBSD site doesn't have the required file.  This is sometimes faster than
going to the MASTER_SITE first.

Or, as RW suggested, try setting RANDOMIZE_MASTER_SITES.
