 G4ABLA.3.0.tar.gz was [PortfileRecipes#stealth-updates stealth-updated] on
 November 24. Comparing the original file on distfiles.macports.org with
 the revised file on geant4.cern.ch, though the gz files differ, and the
 tar files inside differ, their contents does not. So I think we should
 just modify the port to fetch the file from our mirrors, until such a time
 as upstream releases a new version of G4ABLA that actually contains
 changes. This will be simpler than introducing `dist_subdir` into the port
 (since the port has so many distfiles).

 Workaround for now: Download G4ABLA.3.0.tar.gz from
 http://distfiles.macports.org/geant4/ and place it in
 /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/geant4, then try installing geant4
