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

    % 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.
