I haven't been able to build a kde install succesfully
in a couple of months.

AND the MESSAGES I POST to this list are NOT coming back,
whats the problem with my posts?

This morning I got up to find this on the build screen:

What can I do to make this work?

I've restarted it, and I see that www.graphviz.org is unreachable,
as it was yesterday also.  I suspect it will make about 20 attempts
to get it, but apparently that site has no mirrors, I restarted it
at least 10 times yesterday trying to make it use a different download
site for graphviz-1.12.tar.gz, but it would not.  How can I force this
if a different site has this file?  Changing the MASTER site in
kde.conf.mk doesn't seem to effect this, its still going to
www.graphviz.org to get this file, and that site won't even
ping.  It does resolve to but it is not pingable.

I changed the MASTER_SITE to a local mirror at gatech, same error,
then I found the graphhviz Makefile was hard coded and took that
out, but it hasn't done anything but return a 404 from any of the
other mirrors.  Its restored and I'm dead till that site can be
resuscitated unless this is not the above problem.  Somehow they
don't seem to be connected to me.

Please advise.

Further research on google discloses that this is an AT&T supplied
program and IS NOT GPL'd.  Since AT&T announced friday that they are
out of the residential long distance market (good riddance) I wonder
if shutting this site down is also part of their grand demise?
