I'm not sure what level we need to fix this at.

This would be a lot easier if the pacman devs accepted my patch to make DL_AGENTS do glob matching.
Bug #50: Support mirror selection for source downloads

Author: mtjm
Status: open
Priority: feature
Target version: 

PKGBUILDs have hardcoded URLs of a source mirror, sometimes they are slow, down or use too much bandwidth.  If the scripts replaced URLs matching some known patterns to use local or random mirrors instead, this would be much faster e.g. for building most packages using sources packaged by Arch.
