I do not know why /usr/ports/net/nss_ldap/distinfo contains a different 
file size (and probably inappropriate checksums), but you can just edit 
/usr/ports/net/nss_ldap/distinfo and put in what you find (start with size 
only, later by using md5 and sha256 utilities in /sbin to calculate 
checksums after the file has been fetched /usr/ports/distfiles).

You can also build from the ports collection with make options to ignore 
size and checksums but I forgot them. ;-)

Of course distinfo is there no just for fun but for security. So you must 
decide whether you modify the file or not.
