The asterisk was a mistake -- the original source file doesn't need
the first part of patch-ad and thus the patch is rejected.

Sure.  I see it with every patch for every package.  Take gnome2-games
just for example:

This is taken from the distinfo file:
SHA1 (gnome-games-2.10.0.tar.bz2) =
RMD160 (gnome-games-2.10.0.tar.bz2) =
SHA1 (patch-aa) = e74547a19267b1a39528d9556d115fff4f7cd21d
SHA1 (patch-ac) = e54f3fecee226f78edf17dc686c6bde2a25e36fd
SHA1 (patch-ad) = 52360026ae111850c8097d315243d040ec654fcf

And this is generated by me, using digest:
SHA1 (gnome-games-2.10.0.tar.bz2) =
RMD160 (gnome-games-2.10.0.tar.bz2) =
SHA1 (patch-aa) = ed05c9fbc4f431b8df2c7b00b02c61a59220491d
SHA1 (patch-ac) = 09b88927fb5f3d5cebd8620026c73056a3447b11
SHA1 (patch-ad) = 798d0ce64156b3e92a321a9df542421d897963fb

Notice the hashes for the tarball are the same, but all are
different for the patchfiles -- has been this way for as long
as I've tried making patches for NetBSD.

Do you see something different at your end?
