[PC-BSD Testing] 9.0rc3 - broken 'fetch' AppCafe

Hello..

Further testing and investigation has given me some insight, a work-around,
but no solution to the real issue.

FTP_PASSIVE_MODE environment is set to YES inside of both pbi_add and
pc-updatemanager, which explains why setting the environment variable
outside has no effect.

workaround:

locate FTP_PASSIVE_MODE inside pbi_add and pc-updatemanager then switch it
to a value of NO

Three things:


   1. Why is passive mode necessary?
   2. What caused passive mode to be disabled or broken on the ftp site(s)?
   3. Could the passive mode setting be moved to pcbsd.conf which
   pc-updatemanager already reads?

Thanks for everyone's help!
