OK, bad example.  But I had similar problems with gmp and mpfr, and they are on the original setting of  http://ymorin.is-a-geek.org/mirrors.
I still have the problem with the corrected URL:

[dufault@pico play_with_crosstool]$ grep -i mirror .config
CT_USE_MIRROR=y
# CT_PREFER_MIRROR is not set
CT_MIRROR_BASE_URL="ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gcc/gcc-4.4.5"
[dufault@pico play_with_crosstool]$ ct-ng build
[INFO ]  Performing some trivial sanity checks

[00:04] / make: *** [build] Error 1
[dufault@pico play_with_crosstool]$

I found the log in the "ct" directory.  The problem is the "curl" is too old:

[ALL  ]    curl: option --retry: is unknown

A newer version of curl needs to be tested for as part of the configuration.
