astro/celestia is using an incomplete src tarball

Howdy y'all,

I'm tracking -Current via the CTM buckets.  Just got the
latest deltas applied.  World & kernel are current as of
last night, as are other ports.  Using the same ol'
puny pentium2 (i386)... still...

We're having problems with building the astro/celestia port
as it is currently configured within FreeBSD.  I have the
knobs WITH_KDE=yes and WITH_LUA=yes in my /etc/make.conf. 
This is a fresh build of Celestia (have it working on my
OSX G4 box at home, thought "why not on the puny p2 also").

The build error on the puny p2 shows up as this:

gmake[5]: *** No rule to make target `eclipsefinderdlg.cpp', needed by `eclipsefinderdlg.o'.  Stop.

Indeed there really is no file named 'eclipsefinderdlg.cpp'
within the tarball fetched by the current FreeBSD Makefile.

I found several 'hits' on the Celestia Forum at
with this exact same symptom occurring on other i386
flavors (Linux mainly).

Seems an incomplete src tarball has been distributed to
various parts of our planet, and people are still having
this same compile problem.  I know I sure am.  ;)

This incomplete tarball is currently being fetched by the
FreeBSD port skeleton as it is currently configured.

I found a particular msg about this problem at the Celestia
forum here:
It said to download the full tarball from here:
This site is working as I write this.

I went to the Celestia SourceForge site just now to check
its src tarball.  Several SF mirrors _do_ currently have the
_correct_ tarball (assuming the teyssier site's version is

Using this file, adjusting the distinfo file should look
like this:
MD5 (celestia-1.3.1.tar.gz) = fcb73c43f5899f8f7e6d0c619a818a8b
SIZE (celestia-1.3.1.tar.gz) = 13291363

But now we have a _new_ compile problem:

Oh boy... I'll mess with this s'more later
(Celestia is okay on my OSX G4 box at home).

But could we get the proper full tarball specs
put into the FreeBSD skeleton, please?  I'll
whip up a PR+patch asap if needed.
