Discussion between Min Sik Kim and me:

me: The pkgsrc/textproc/tex-makeindex package doesn't build for me
me: on OSX 10.4 due to a SHA1 checksum mismatch.

Min Sik Kim: That's because the distfile was changed at TeX Live
Min Sik Kim: mirrors.  But pkgsrc is supposed to try another site
Min Sik Kim: until it downloads the correct distfile or there is no
Min Sik Kim: more site to try.  Because
Min Sik Kim: always has the correct distfile, pkgsrc should
Min Sik Kim: eventually fetch the file there.  Isn't this the case
Min Sik Kim: for you?

me: Nope. Actually I'm about installing the print/teTeX
me: package and I download all files first with
me:   bmake fetch-list | sh

Min Sik Kim: It seems that the script generated by the fetch-list
Min Sik Kim: target doesn't verify checksums and assume the fetch is
Min Sik Kim: always successful.  I think you need to file a PR against
Min Sik Kim: fetch-list.  Fixing tex-makeindex would not prevent this
Min Sik Kim: problem from recurring.

me: Done.
