pkglint is looking for the md5 hash, it doesn't seem to know anything
about the new stuff (sha1, or whatever). Have a look at the pkglint code
(I don't do perl but I still understand it..), look for a line containing

  if (m/^MD5 \(([^\)]+)\) = (\S+)/)

That'd be a good place to start if you know perl..
