Summary

As described in https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=224871

the `make fetchindex' may leave a corrupt INDEX file

Another issue is: the fetch command runs in mirror mode (-am), but the INDEX.bz2 file will be deleted after extracted. That does not make sense.

Last but not least I think we should display a message where we download the INDEX file.

why not just saying fetch ${MASTER_SITE_INDEX}/... instead of nameing the file and repeating again?
