I'm terribly sorry, it was false alarm. :-(
The files seem to be stale on the mirror I was using,
i.e. it didn't resync some packages that were updated
on the master, even though the date stamps on the mirror
are fresh. I have no idea what's going on there.
After I removed the files locally and downloaded them
from the main FTP site, all checksums match. So
everything seems to be OK.
Sorry for the confusion.
