Yes, I know. I had already downloaded and checked the
contents of the tarball, but
there are no README, COPYRIGHT, nor anything that can
provide a clue as to what version/snapshot of the code we

And yes I can diff the files I have against the ones that
came from the tarball with the old checksum ... but where do
I get the old tarball? Does FreeBSD store this somewhere?

But wait ... I just searched Google and found a couple of
mirrors that seem to be outdated. So, yes I've found the old tarball with

So I guess I'll submit a PR to update the distinfo and fix
