force the update of the distfile when one installs the port? I was
thinking that running the distclean target prior to fetch would work
but what is the cleanest way to implement that?
Contact original author of software and ask him/her to assign some
meaningful version number to the tarball in question. All other
options suck badly.
I did contact him a while back and he gave me some reason for wanting to
do it the way he does so that is a dead end. I guess it will just have
to be up to the user to handle it when the checksum mismatch occurs.
