'make checksum' does exactly what you want: fetch the file, make a
checksum, compare it, try to fetch the file again if it's incorrect,
make a new checksum, compare it again ...
If you just want to change the behaviour of 'make fetch' because you
think it might be confusing to new users then offer a patch. If it is
good and works without changing the current behaviour of other rules
(e.g. checksum) then maybe someone will commit it.
