This is due to fetch command's firm belief that as long as filenames are
same, the attributes (filedates only ?) must be same.

I could not find the way to turn off this belief, and had been continually
meeting fetch troubles when upgrading version number free ports such as
lang/nawk and japanese/xpdf.

You must have accidentally created a file with the same name, which
won't have expected md5. You just need remove the file.

I'm now using

FETCH_CMD	= /usr/bin/ftp

which gives me more familiar behavior. And awaiting wrong thing(s) happen.

The port system seems to strongly prefer fetch over ftp.
What are the expected wrong things with ftp ?
