It looks like what it's doing is regenerating the man page every night
from a cron script, so the timestamp is different every day.
It looks like a feasible alternative to caching a distfile is to fetch
from svn and checksum the individual files; the svn tree doesn't have
the man page, but we could build it as we have his man page tool
already (it's textproc/halibut)... but while I thought we had some
existing packages that checked trees out of anonymous cvs or whatever,
I can't find any of them and that's not something I want to try to
Maybe caching a distfile is a better idea...
