md5 -s "some string" will give you the md5 hash of "some string" -- it's not what you want. You need to run: md5 httpd-2.0.48.tar.gz and then compare that output to the distinfo file in the www/apache2 port: % cat distinfo MD5 (apache2/httpd-2.0.48.tar.gz) = 466c63bb71b710d20a5c353df8c1a19c MD5 (apache2/powerlogo.gif) = 0f106073b3c7844cf22d4df126b27c62 Yup. You've got the correct httpd-2.0.48.tar.gz sources. Of couse, you don't have to do this by hand. It's done automatically as part of building the port.
