 Log Message:
 Restore the tradition behaviour of the "checksum" target.  It can be
 run now at any time up until the "extract" phase completes, and the
 "checksum" target no longer keeps a state (cookie) file.
 From the file comments:
     We do not actually wish to create a cookie file for the completion
     of the checksum phase because we want to be able to detect if
     any of the files have changed right up until the distfiles are
     extracted.  Therefore, we use the presence of the cookie file
     from the "extract" phase to determine whether we need to continue
     to verify checksums.
 This addresses PR pkg/36262 and PR pkg/36603.
