If I am not totally wrong here, FreeBSD has changed its ports checksums 
towards SHA256 for a while now. See for example

#head emulators/linux_base-f10/distinfo.i386
SHA256 (rpm/i386/fedora/10/basesystem-10.0-1.noarch.rpm) = 
SIZE (rpm/i386/fedora/10/basesystem-10.0-1.noarch.rpm) = 2915
SHA256 (rpm/i386/fedora/10/bash-3.2-30.fc10.i386.rpm) = 
SIZE (rpm/i386/fedora/10/bash-3.2-30.fc10.i386.rpm) = 1887256
SHA256 (rpm/i386/fedora/10/bzip2-1.0.5-3.fc10.i386.rpm) = 
SIZE (rpm/i386/fedora/10/bzip2-1.0.5-3.fc10.i386.rpm) = 50129
SHA256 (rpm/i386/fedora/10/bzip2-libs-1.0.5-3.fc10.i386.rpm) = 
SIZE (rpm/i386/fedora/10/bzip2-libs-1.0.5-3.fc10.i386.rpm) = 39174
SHA256 (rpm/i386/fedora/10/compat-db-4.6.21-5.fc10.i386.rpm) = 
SIZE (rpm/i386/fedora/10/compat-db-4.6.21-5.fc10.i386.rpm) = 10267
