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
# 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
