Re: pkg/37148 (_CHECKSUM_CMD not defined if NO_CHECKSUM="yes")

Synopsis: _CHECKSUM_CMD not defined if NO_CHECKSUM="yes"

This is not really a bug in the code, but rather a bug in the documentation.
NO_CHECKSUM should really only be used by packages that have no distinfo
file.  The "checksum" action occurs during both the fetch, extract, and
patch stages.  In the case where there is no distfile yet patches need
to be applied, the appropriate thing to do is to set DISTFILES to an
empty value.  This needs to be documented somewhere, probably in the
pkgsrc guide, before this PR can be closed.
