Correct, yes. I've just verified that right now using the 9.5 amd64
netinst and it currently fails on three packages with missing dependencies:

 * mutt (as started this thread)
 * bind9-host
 * dnsutils

If you're using a netinst, you're *really* expected to use a
mirror. If you're not, you should know what you're doing to fix
any issues you find like this.
