        Until a little over a week ago (for the past 9 months or so
        at least) cad/geda was a meta-pkg 0even though it lived in
        the cad/* pkgsrc hierarchy, rather than meta-pkgs/*)

        As such it had no distfile, no distinfo, just dependencies
        on a bunch of other stuff.

        Recently, (a little over a week ago) that was all changed,
        and cad/geda is now "it" and all the rest is gone (no objections
        to that, if this is starting to sound a bit like that...)

        But, in the process, while DISTNAME came back, distinfo
        did not.

        cd ..../pkgsrc/cad/geta
        make checksum

        expect a message, something like ...

checksum: distinfo file missing: /usr/src/pkgsrc/cad/geda/distinfo

        Create the distinfo file again (move it back out of the Attic,
        however that's done in CVS), and make sur eit contains the
        correct magic,

                make distinfo

        will probably do it (assuming the distfile is present).
