Last night, sourceforge was returning an html file saying that SF
was in "disaster recovery mode".  The checksum check baled out at this point. 

This morning, something a bit different is happening, but there's still
a checksum issue. 

My suggestion is to wait a couple of days.  
I wonder whether there might be some way for macports to avoid the use of SF?
Googling around, SF seems to have a pretty grubby reputation nowadays.
