ok, that's a different problem, though.

The bash patch checksums don't actually change, though, right? There are just new ones added or a different set are necessary when the bash version changes?

Common case is:
- new version -> change version number, fetches a new single distfile, need to update single distfile checksums

Less common case #1 is:
- new version -> change version number, fetches multiple new distfiles (possibly including patches), need to update multiple distfile checksums

Less common case #2 is:
- portfile is extra complicated (does some craziness to generate a large number sub-ports)

Maybe we can attack the common case and enhance it to cover additional cases?
