The dcraw.c distfile for graphics.dcraw seems to be dynamically
altering at the master site. The version I fetched 3 days ago
doesn't match the checksum expected, a version I fetched just now
doesn't either, and isn't the same as the earlier version I fetched
(there are quite a few changes).
The complete "diff -u" of those two versions is almost 500 lines
(and not really relevant anyway, since neither is the version
pkgsrc is expecting) but one obvious change is ...

I have no idea which version pkgsrc expected to see.

Since the fine seems to be changing frequently, either delete the pkg
completely until there is something stable, or disable checksums for
this one (rely upon it being able to be fetched correctly, etc),
or put a canonical copy (the version pkgsrc wants) on some other
site (ftp.netbsd.org ?) and use that as the master site.
