As far as I can tell, the checksums were never correct in the portfile. The distfile on their server has not been modified since January 24, which is before the portfile was committed.

The old distfile was not mirrored by any of our distfiles mirrors. (The distfile mirrors do not mirror a file if the checksums don't match.) The new file is now being mirrored.
