        The checksum recorded for the distfiles for games/puzzles does
        not match the distfile obtained frmo the MASTER_SITE

        What's more, a distfile obtained just a few minutes ago is not
        the same as one (with the identical name) fetched 18 hours ago.
        Frmo the mod dates of the files, it appears likely that the
        file is updated daily.

        mv ...../distfiles/puzzles-20090803 /somewhere/else
        cd ..../pkgsrc/games/puzzles
        make checksum
                (wait 24 hours and repeat, and compare fetched distfiles).

        Most likely pick a distfile, any distfile, stick it on
        (and mirrors) and change the MASTER_SITES to be MASTER_SITES_LOCAL
        (or whatever the correct terminology is for ditching the idiots
        upstream who don't know how to maintain version numbers in a sane way).

        Then pick a new DIST_SUBDIR name, revbump games/puzzles, and all
        should be fine.
