The problem is that Sleepycat repackaged their tarball at some point this 
year, changing the filesize and checksum without changing the version number. 
I have a feeling I got round this on one box by upgrading the ports tree 
(which of course adds its own problems with newer ports, dependencies etc), 
and on another box by copying the checksum and file size from 
http://www.freshports.org/ into the port's distinfo.

It is an extremely irritating problem: in an ideal world no-one would ever 
change the size/checksum of their main distfile without also changing the 
filename/version number, even if only slightly.
