Hi, and thanks for looking at this.

The package contents was actually modified, but no version change for
"official" numbering was detected -- the fonts have no official
version so I have to derive it from what stated in the TTF files and
dates in ZIP archives.

Moreover, the PT fonts bundle contains three zipfiles, where only a
single one might be affected. So setting DIST_SUBDIR will lead to
number of duplicating distfiles which I'd like to avoid (except pkgsrc
supports individual DIST_SUBDIR for every distfile). Of course the
package may be split on three packages as well, but IMHO it's better
to keep the whole PT font family as a single package, despite it seem
the most appropriate approach to a pkgsrc.

So how about bump the package revision and force replacement of the
changed distfile (may be currently unimplemented in pkgrsc, but
shouldn't be a problem)? I understand that some people may want to
keep all distfiles, but keeping them in sync with font developers
sounds pretty consistent as well.

Alternatively, FreeBSD ports collection is keeping all zipfiles
locally in order to workaround the issue.
