Probably nothing. ftp.freebsd.org is a bit overtaxed recently
(there was a message about it posted to freebsd-announce the other day).
You're most likely being kicked off because of too many users.
You may want to edit the makefile for that package and have it
look at a different host (such as ftp2.freebsd.org), or do what it said
and get the tarball manually and put it into /usr/ports/distfiles/ .
