Hmm, this is wrong, I believe.  The geographically closest mirror is
not necessarily the fastest one.  In fact with my disgusting
monopolist provider it never is.  Connecting to ftpmirror.gnu.org
redirects to a Greek mirror, which is indeed closest (closer than the
Ukrainian one).  But it's not the fastest, I think.

Furthermore, concrete URLs don't appear to work, e.g.

$ LC_ALL=C wget ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/m4-1.4.12.tar.gz
--00:00:54--  ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/m4-1.4.12.tar.gz
           => `m4-1.4.12.tar.gz.2'
