 I found out two issues with the repos:

 1. The gentoo mirror we are using (ftp.linux.es, I think) has some issues,
 like: two destdir dirs, and some packages not downloading at all. I would
 use ftp.osuosl.org/pub/gentoo/destdir, because it does not have those
 issues.

 2. (pr)downloads.sourceforge.net picks a SF mirror at random, usaly, the
 not-superb "Superb" Hosting mirror. I would use
 internap.dl.sourceforge.net, because, it's just faster than "Superb"
 hosting, and it's more superb too.

 I have fixed those with the attached patch.
