Not understanding something basic about downloading

I'm trying to hook my build system into ct-ng hosted on a clients old RHEL4 system.  I've updated the tools that the ct-ng configuration called out and it installed OK.  However, I can't get automatic downloading to work - I have to download things manually into the directory, and then ct-ng finds the tarballs.  If I try to let it do the download itself it fails and there are no logs.

Consider - it can't find gcc.4.4.5, but I can download it from that location specified as the base URL.  Am I missing something basic?  As you can see it's ct-ng-1.9.0. "make" and "curl" aren't updated, make is 3.8 and curl is 7.12.1.
