How to install when doc.coin3d.org is down?

I'm trying to install freecad (media-gfx/freecad-0.12.5284-r2) on Gentoo Linux (3.1.6-gentoo #9 SMP x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux).

It appears to be well on its way to building, until...

doc.coin3d.org is indeed down (cannot ping it), and has been that way for the past 4 days that I've been trying to install freecad.

I will not write a 40 page whitepaper (here) on how absolutely stupid and shortsighted a decision it is to make the build depend on a server that is obviously not maintained, especially when the build doesn't care about a USE flag of "-doc." I will not even use any of the profanity that is well-warranted over the decision. I just want to know if there is an alternate, competently-maintained server hosting the needed "coin.tag" file to which I can point the build.

    It is really annoying. I am on Fedora, there is no package containing the required library, so there is really no "right" way to install it for about a week by now.
