Thanks I just missed that one. Actually I didn't even knew what it  
meant and in another portfile I was updating I just deleted it.

I'm using a bash script to generate checksums as I found myself typing  
each commands often when updating, as I had to manage with more than  
one distfile per port I found it easier to type the name too even when  
there's is a single file.

By the way did you ever wanted a checksum auto-update option?
I think of updates that just involve updating a release number, you  
edit it, port fetch, port checksumupdate and you're ready.

I think on 1.1.7 freeradius didn't supported DESTDIR correctly so I  
commented it to test why it was there in first place.

Thanks for suggestions, I'll fix those
