/math/djbfft/ distfile errors - will not fetch and build

Thanks - Yes, you can fetch the file in that way, but that isn't the 
issue.  The FreeBSD port listing is wrong and even if a user manages the 
workaround of downloading it directly, it still will not compile because 
it does not have a checksum. 

If  you try to make the port, even if you fetch it directly and not from 
the port - this is the result.  The issue still stands, the port needs 
to be fixed.
