Which server did the bad distfile come from? See:

The file is certainly available from our central distfiles mirror:

Several of the mirrors that were listed in the port did not have the file, and two of the servers did not exist anymore; if you have a DNS server on your network that does not correctly report the nonexistence of servers, then you would have received a checksum error as a result. MacPorts 1.9.2 and up will detect this problem and refer you to the following page which has more information and suggestions:

I removed these bad mirrors now:

So you could "sudo port selfupdate", "sudo port clean --all slocate", and try again. If it still fails, show us what mirror the download came from.
