The current way is to put the download location in the packages.ent file
along with the packages other information such as name and version.
<!ENTITY autoconf-version "2.59">
<!ENTITY autoconf-directory "autoconf-&autoconf-version;">
<!ENTITY autoconf-md5 "1ee40f7a676b3cfdc0e3f7cd81551b5f">
If the file to download is an archive you can use <reference> in <unpack>
or if its a non-compressed file you must use <download>.
