MD5 for distinfo has been deprecated
erwin@ committed http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=149657,Â based on work by dougb@ and rene@. Â It deprecates the use of md5Â checksums in distinfo. Â So here on in, when you run make makesum, theÂ md5 will no longer be generated, only the sha256 checksum.
Existing distinfo containing md5 info will silently be ignored. Â So atÂ this time there is no need re-create distinfo for the sake of removingÂ it, just allow the regular flow of ports updates take care of it.
