If you just need what I think you need...

% for i in $(grep-dctrl -F Site -r . -s Site -n <Mirrors.masterlist); do echo $(grep-dctrl -F Site -X $i -s Country -n <Mirrors.masterlist | cut -d\  -f1) http://${i}$(grep-dctrl -F Site -X $i -s Archive-http -n <Mirrors.masterlist) | grep -v http://$i$ ; done | gzip -c | wc -c
