"apt-mirror" does not understand non standard port

Today when i was setting up configuration for apt-mirror, i faced this problem of apt-mirror not recognizing non-standard port. I thought i would post the fix for the bug, as this might be helpful for others as well

Step 1: Edit the apt-mirror script

# nano /usr/bin/apt-mirror

Step 2: Look for the line

$uri =~ s&:\d+/&/&; # and port information

Change it to,

$uri =~ s&:\d+/$&/&; # and port information

Step 3: Run your apt-mirror command

There you go !!! You have your mirror fetching from non-standard port.
