The pkgsrc guys make it a point to contact the party responsible for the
re-roll and polite ask to never, ever do that again because all the
repositories (ports, pkgsrc, apt, arch, rest of linux, etc) are
depending on a hash and rerolling breaks all of them.
Sometimes upstream just doesn't realize the consequences and they'll not
do it again once informed. Something they just don't care and it keeps
I am a bit surprised that a database developer that should understand
