Ok, just have been reading similar reports, and a common theme seemed to
be corrupt packages. Checked the fetchmail package and sure 
enough, the file size was not correct.  Just finished
downloading it again, and will try again.

Searching now for some file on the website that has 
the checksums/md5 that I can compare my download
with....  Try to avoid any future issues.

So, This ticket appears to be closed...
