which reminds me that print/cups suffers from such a distinfo error, I
noticed it a couple of weeks ago when building something though I never
got around to checking it when the builds finally finished - the original
cups-1.3.11-source.tar.bz2 from does not match but one I
got from a mirror seemed fine..


(cups is at 1.4.2 now but I'm not a user of it)
