distclean removes the distfiles for the current port.  You can then
re-fetch it from the ftp site, and it will hopefully not be corrupted.
If you continue to get checksum errors, it can indicate that you have
an out-of-date ports collection, or that you should fetch it by hand
from another mirror as directed.

See the variables listed in the sample make.conf file and
for specifying mirror site preferences.
