In addition to the problem described below, I have another one: I
changed the ports' disfile to look with the same checksum etc. for a
file scribus-1.4.5.tar.bz2 which I have put into /usr/ports/disfiles.

Now the poudriere was blaming that it could not find
scribus-1.4.5.tar.xz in the ports's distfile; of course not, because I
changed it there to scribus-1.4.5.tar.bz2; why poudriere have had the
old name scribus-1.4.5.tar.xz?

I finally renamed the tar archive in /usr/ports/disfiles. and revoked
the change in the distfile and all was fine.

But there is definitely an issue.

Subject: problem re/ distfile for port print/scribus


the port print/scribus in HEAD looks for the source file

SHA256 (scribus-1.4.5.tar.xz) = 9f706f0561d26bb11bbe558690ae0507cd3689e381f6e17aa9411d9c4ef58498
SIZE (scribus-1.4.5.tar.xz) = 78251228

bute the master side
does not show any scribus-1.4.5.tar.xz file, only scribus-1.4.5.tar.bz2

When I download the *.gz2 file it gives:

$ sha256 scribus-1.4.5.tar.bz2
SHA256 (scribus-1.4.5.tar.bz2) = 9f706f0561d26bb11bbe558690ae0507cd3689e381f6e17aa9411d9c4ef58498
$ ls -l scribus-1.4.5.tar.bz2
-rw-r--r--  1 guru  wheel  78251228 29 jul 11:00 scribus-1.4.5.tar.bz2

i.e. the filename in the distfile is wrong, the hash and size are
