	The checksum recorded for postgresql-8.0.9.tar.bz2 in the
	distinfo file for databases/postgresql80 (which affects the
	various other postgresql80 packages of course) doesn't matsh the
	distfile available from the (far too many) postgress master sites.

	mv ..../distfiles/postgresql-8.0.9.tar.bz2 /some/where/safe/.
	cd ..../pkgsrc/databases/postgresql80
	make checksum

	Be prepared to wait a very long time ... the current state of
	"make fetch" tries every possible master site as it detects the
	file fetched does not match the distinfo (one would have thought
	after 4 or 5 failures it would make sense to just quit, but that's
	not what happens - for me waiting forthis to finish can easily be
	more than 12 hours).

	Find out what happned to the distfile from the time of the last
	upgrade to the package (this has been broken since that day - I
	have been attempting to fetch, usually once a day, since then)
	and if the changes are harmless, update the distinfo file.
