ImageMagick Checksum Mismatch.

I'm trying to upgrade graphics/ImageMagick, but it seems that there is a 
checksum mismatch with the ImageMagick-5.5.7-15.tar.bz2 file.

Can someone please let me know if there is a legitimate reason for this?

Here is what I assume to be the pertinent information:

Timestamp from ImageMagick Makefile:
$FreeBSD: ports/graphics/ImageMagick/Makefile,v 1.176 2004/01/21 06:57:29 nork 
Exp $

md5 checksum from ImageMagick distinfo file:
MD5 (ImageMagick-5.5.7-15.tar.bz2) = 80144cc67bb9888b26f9704362269487

md5 checksum from ImageMagick source file downloaded from
MD5 (ImageMagick-5.5.7-15.tar.bz2) = 6780f81dee32f1e8d2f277b6fe621955

I've re-downloaded the file multiple times from the site, just in case there 
was a problem with the download. Also, I've pulled the same file from some 
mirrors and noticed that the checksums from the mirrors match the checksum 
from the official ftp site, not the checksum in the distinfo 
file (which makes sense if the mirrors pull the file automagically from the 
main site).

Also, to magick-developers@, I am not subscribed so please make sure to CC me 
if you reply to this message.
