Sorry, I wish I could copy/paste, but the machine's not far enough along yet
to do that.  I tried deleting the distfile and refetched, but it was still
the same problem, which brings up the message that the 'checksum is
incorrect'.  Now let me point out that I was originally building from
meta-pkgs/kde3, which bombed, so to find out why, I went to x11/kdebase3,
which is where the 'checksum' problem occurred.  So I set NO_CHECKSUM=yes
and continued ok.  That's why I thought somebody needs to update the
checksum on x11/kdebase3.

I still have a problem with xorg though (in another thread).

I misunderstand "checksum in the Makefile".

Maybe you can save the errors and copy and paste it.

Or try deleting the distfile(s) and refetching them.
