I finally switched /etc/apt/sources.list over to ftp.debian-ports.org yesterday.
This morning, "apt-get update" followed by "apt-get upgrade" looks like this:

Need to get 68.5 MB of archives.
After this operation, 197 kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? 

Good to see some updates available!  Has anyone stepped forward to provide

available prior to the old build daemons being shutdown...

Thanks, all, for helping to keep this platform alive a bit longer.
