Re: misc/vym distinfo checksum update

On the subject of checksums PKG_RESUME_TRANSFERS can cause problems, when 
for reason a download from siteA (for eg. is interupted 
the fetch script will loop over to the next site (eg. and
start from were it was interupted.  The resultant file while being the 
right size it is corrupt (checksum don't match and compresser test reports 
a data integrity error).

I have no idea why this happens (a bug in tnftp or the sites server 
softwere) but it does happen.

  1: Linux - will work for fish.
  2: The Linux penguin - looks stuffed to the brim with herring.
