The link on our website is OK. The host dl.sourceforge.net isa
round-robin alias which will resolve to any random IP address in a
list of servers. I found one server which did hot host the
libgphoto2-2.4.0.tar.bz2 tarball, but could connect to several others
(and download the tarball) successfully just now as a test.
Ideally you would use the "-T" option to wget in order to download the
tarball. With sourceforge.net mirrors you will sometimes find one that
does not answer, and "-T" will make sure you will get reconnected to
another one real soon.
For instance I used:
"wget -T 10 http://dl.sourceforge.net/gphoto/libgphoto2-2.4.0.tar.bz2"
for my tests.
The URL you provided is too specific to be acceptable as a download
URL for SlackBuilds.org.
