which is why I added that to the maintainers log.
It was radically different, as you can see by the diffs for distinfo.
'distfile changing'?  That was why the maintainer posted the pr, 
specifically with distfile changing.

I watch for (and won't take a pr for) a new-port that uses things like 
'dropbox/' megaupload :-) or personal accounts (well, maybe
I have had people tell me they have to use a personal account because 
the tarball is not available, and they need to 'git' the source.

I have had my ports pr's rejected by a maintainer/committer because the 
PATCH was in (and, pointing to the 
authoritative source as primary.. waiting for the primary source mirrors 
to catch up.)

in this case, what should I have done? new distfile is 40x the size of 
the  original ?  yeh, its radically changed. no, the maintainer didn't 
say it was radically changed, I did.
