I'm seeing tons of unbuildable packages lately. Well, maybe tons is an
overstatement, but many packages I had installed won't build anymore, such
as mplayer. In a lot of the cases it seems to be caused by checksum
mismatches. None of the cases that has happened recently has been an actual
*build* problem - only a problem caused by, i guess, sloppy pkgsrc
