I did that already, but I seem to have given up too early ...

No release found

(I made a few more unsuccessful attempts with other python modules out
of my head.)

I didn't think of the fact that I used the wrong capitalisation.

The following works:

> pypi2port -f pyPEG2
Fetching distfiles...

Aborting due to inconsistency on checksums

... kind of. It's still pretty useless as it aborts.

Fixing *this particular* pypi2port conversion is no longer relevant (I
created the port manually anyway and already committed it), but:
- we should probably fix the sources and also update the portfile
- it might make sense to further diagnose the problem with
inconsistent checksums anyway
