I will try to check in a tool I've used to automate this later tonight; I
just need to find a few moments to put the macports license boilerplate in
it first. It is a python script that drives the port command to determine
what (if any) checksums need to be updated for a port, and then uses sed to
actually (s/old/new/) update it. It runs sed with no backup, so it is best
used in an svn version so you can see what it has changed. (Or it could be
modified to create a backup file easily enough.)
