any system will give checksum error due to winblowsaolware corruption
of postscript files.
Unfortunately, some of us have to download via billystupidgateswindows
and aolfrigginware, and transport files to our treasured NetBSD boxes.
Don't laugh too hard, OK.
Unfortunately, billyaolware tries to translate ascii files, in this
case /usr/pkgsrc/distfiles/ghostscript/pdf_sec.ps, gets written in
the process as an HTML file. Go Billyaoljunkware!
IFF the file were gzipped in the archives, that would not be a problem,
since billyjunkaolware does not try to convert that kind of binary file.
Dare to use BillyGatesWinblowsaoljunkware.. oh, pain, oh pain, oh pain.
gzip /usr/pkgsrc/distfiles/ghostscript/pdf_sec.ps in the archives.
Maybe ammend the build scripts to ungzip it.
