 I guess that network issues caused my system to fetch another distfile
 than the one stored on netbsd servers; When looking via cvsweb at the
 times of Makefile vs distinfo updates, I indeed see a distinfo update
 for 2.8.7 23 months ago.  Sorry for the noise.  Still odd that a project
 would update an already released version-tagged source tarball...
