You have a couple of options:

1) Just ignore it.  Every few weeks I do a build run fetching from the
original master sites and then refresh the distfiles onto ftp-master.

2) Beat the developers over the head for not using a versioned distfile.

3) Use DIST_SUBDIR=${PORTNAME} or a variation so that when you update
the distfile (with associated PORTVERSION/REVISION bump) it will be
stored into a new location, and won't collide with an existing
distfile on bento.
