Yes.  They've been screwed by the download mirror system Sourceforge
introduced on 2002-05-03.  As I wrote when I changed prc-tools's
.htaccess to deal with this:

	Update the redirect to cope with Sourceforge's new download
	mirror system.  You'd think they could have implemented that
	without breaking all the old URLs, but no...

They need to tell people to use

(or similar) instead.

That works fine in but has a parse error in the 2.253
snapshot, perhaps because of the blank line at the end.

(Hey, nice parse error message!  That'll help if the bizarre parse error
prc-tools's setup.ini was intermittently getting recurs.)
