I cant think of a way to automate this within the port. I can make the
port fetch the distfile depending on the date.. like this:
MYDATE!= date "+%Y.%m.%d"
But the problem exists with the distinfo. The file size and md5 checksum
will change daily, isnt there a NO_CHECKSUM or something within the port?
