Probably due to no access rather than file not found, so is there a firewall
in the path somewhere?  You may need to configure 'make' by editing /etc/ma=

Here's a section from /etc/defaults/make.conf:

# If you're behind a firewall and need FTP or HTTP proxy services for
# ports collection fetching to work, the following examples give the
# necessary syntax.  See the fetch(3) man page for details.
