        The distfile on the master site for audio/albumplayer is 1 byte
        bigger (and of course, with a different checksum) than is expected
        by the pkgsrc distinfo file - that suggests that the master site
        changed the distfile (without changing its filename) after the
        pkgsrc author built the package - the distfile has not been copied
        to f.n.o which then suggests that the master site distfile change
        happens before the upgraded package was committed.

        mv ...../distfiles/albumplayer-0.3.1.tar.gz /somewhere/safe
        cd ..../pkgsrc/audio/albumplayer
        make checksum

        Someone with the previous version of the distfile should look
        and see what changed in the new one, and if it the change is
        safe, update the pkgsrc distinfo file (if not, put the good
        distfile on f.n.o so pkgsrc can fetch it from there).

        I doubt if a revbump is needed for this, as it doesn't seem
        likely that anyone could have ever successfully used pkgsrc
        to build or install this package.
