1. just changing distinfo is not ok because it means those with the old
distfile will have trouble, and it papers over a broken upstream.  See
DIST_SUBDIR in the guide.

2. Please consider filing a bug with upstream.  This should not happen,
as it's indistinguishable from an attack.

3. I would want to diff the old and new.  But that can be hard :-)
