What about the distfiles directory? 

Having two "make checksums" running on the same file used to work
fairly well, but not any more because the target now deletes an
incomplete file rather than trying to resume it.

This wont damage packages, but it can cause two "make checksums" to get
locked in a cycle of deleting each other's files and end with one
getting a failed checksum.
