 We don't control ftp.gnu.org.  I recommend you contact the gnu.org
 webmasters if you continue to have trouble.
 I can't reproduce the problem either:
 --20:21:50--  http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gdb/gdb-6.1.1.tar.bz2
            => `gdb-6.1.1.tar.bz2'

 And from your link I don't see any evidence that there's anything wrong
 with the gentoo mirrors, either.
