Yes. They updated the packages without changing the version number to fix a 
security issue (yep, real smart).
The maintainer has already sent a PR about this, but the ports are in a 
code-freeze at the moment.

To fix it:
make makesum

distinfo should look like:
MD5 (phpBB-2.0.6.tar.bz2) = 6574f13e2c7b66fda4faf1b2ddacae48
