If you copy the kermit directory on the cdrom to your hard drive with
cp -R /cdrom/ports/comms/kermit /usr/ports/kermit
and then type make in the kermit directory that has Makefile, the
ftp to Columbia University will succeed--at least it did for me.
Also the first site in the Makefile does allow anonymous ftp. Use
ftp> open kermit.columbia.edu
Next type ftp (for user) and then your e-mail address as a password.
Then cd to the appropriate directory.
