Re: What's with pkgsrc and checksums?

The main difference between `make mps' and manually invoking sha1(1) is
that the RCS $NetBSD$ keywords are deleted in the former, and hence why the
SHA1 checksum differs.

Apart what Joerg said and - depends on the use case - probably
LOCALPATCHES can be quite useful as well and IMHO handier.

For more information about it please give a look to `make help
topic=LOCALPATCHES' (you can just create a directory to store all
your local patches, set it via `LOCALPATCHES' in your mk.conf and
then put your patches in `${LOCALPATCHES}/<category>/<package>/...'
without needing to modify the distinfo).
