I'm assuming it actually said: 
" local modification *time* does not match remote"

If that's correct then try adding:

FETCH_CMD=   fetch -FARr

to /etc/make.conf.

By default fetch checks that a partially complete file matches the datestamp 
of the remote file, this. This is supposed to stop you continue downloading a 
file that has been modified, but in practice I find this check overwhelmingly 
produces false-positives. The integrity of the file is decided  by md5
