On Sunsite UK this would probably be /packages/FreeBSD, as that's their
standard layout, but that doesn't work either.

Sunsite UK doesn't seem to have been mirroring FreeBSD for quite some
time, although I suspect this is due to lack of disk space than for
any other reason.  Nowadays I tend to download from the plig mirror
instead, which seems to have good connectivity.
