This means that the distfile you downloaded does not match the
expected checksum from pkgsrc.
This could have many reasons, among the easy ones corrupted or
incomplete transfer.  You can do
	make distclean
to remove the files you downloaded and try again.

Of course it could also be that the file has changed on the master
site, in which case you could try to set
	FAILOVER_FETCH=         yes
in your /etc/mk.conf, which makes pkgsrc try all available sites,
including, which should have a correct copy.
