Well, I filled this PR, thinking that no explicit maintainers' approval
is needed for this change. This my thought is based on the relevant
"SHA256 checksums" discussion on ports@ and on your unambiguous request:

Please send-pr it, otherwise it will almost certainly get lost.

I think asking portmgr for approval is the best choise for this PR.
Otherwise the diff must be split into small diffs for each maintainer's
ports and somehow (flood the PR database with 600+ PRs?) ask for approval.
This sounds really horrible and thoughtless.
Other solution is to leave the things as they are and use the widespread
"do nothing" strategy :-) After all there are more important things to
bother with, than the SHA256 sums.
