	When I do a "make fetch" or "make checksum" in biology/profit
	I end up re-fetching the old distfile from an older version of
	this package - from one of the NetBSD missor sites.

	The master site does not seem to have the distfile required.

	mv ..../distfiles/profit.tar.gz ..../distfiles/profit.tar.gz.OLD
	cd .../pkgsrc/biology/profit
	make checksum

# observe that the distfiles is fetched from one of the backup sites,
# and that the distfile fetched fails the checksum test.   Closer
# inspection will note that the file fetched is quite old, and is in fact
# the same file that would have been fetched a year ago.

	Find a source for the distfile actualy wanted by this package.

	Then, if it is still "profit.tar.gz", use a DIST_SUBDIR - this
	should be mandatory for all distfiles that don't contain any
	version information.
