Check <http://www.freshports.org/net/nss_ldap> - the most recent checkin 
message (2007-12-16) states that the original author rerolled the distfile 
without making any changes.

There are at least a couple of ports where distributors sometimes repackage 
the source tarball and don't bother to change the version number because they 
haven't changed anything else. You can either choose to ignore, or manually 
change, the filesize and checksum, or just bring the ports tree up to date 
and try again.
