The PR has been there for months, and of course eventually removing the
MD5s was discussed years ago when SHA256 was added. :) But seriously,
you could not have been expected to see either one of those.

While I am very glad that the portmgr team tested and committed this
update it would have been nice to send a head's up so that tool authors
had the opportunity to get their stuff updated first. I asked
(privately) numerous times for a status update, and never received one.
Nothin' ever doesn't change, but nothin' changes much.
