   |  However, there seems to be a problem with the server-side code serving

 I did a little more investigating too ... if I use wget to fetch it
 comes correctly - with whatever pkgsrc uses by default (either the
 standard ftp client, or something using libfetch - whatever it is) the
 sole difference (that makes the sizes different, and alters the checksum)
 is that a '1' (0x31) is appended to the file.   gzip just says
 	trailing garbage ignored
 and otherwise unpacks the file (seemingly) fine (I have not tried to
 untar it to verify, but it is likely to be OK).
 Maybe someone might recognise what might be appending a '1' at the end of
 a file fetched using ftp (or whatever) using HTTP (port 80) - or what the
 server might be doing, which apparently depends upon the client, that would
 cause the file to get sent differently.
