I guess you're trying to install something to do with, as is only listed under MASTER_SITE_XORG.

It seems that server may be down -- for the time being at least --
however, there are several other mirrors around the world that the ports
could use instead.  For most 'site down' type errors, if you just wait
patiently, the ports should eventually try the next server in sequence.
 However, if that doesn't work, you could try adding[*]

MASTER_SORT=3D            .uk

to /etc/make.conf -- this should cause the ports to try and download
from a different server initially.  The '.uk. MASTER_SORT probably won't
help very much here, as although is on the
MASTER_SITE_XORG list, as you can see, it doesn't have '.uk' in its URL.
 The obvious substitution to get to sort first is left
as an exercise...
