Update distinfo to reflect alpha to release version

Appears the tar has updated from showing an alpha version to 2.3.3 release.

Jack, can you clarify what happened upstream.

Did the commit hash that the 2.3.3 repository tag pointed to get moved?

This "appears to be the case":

https://sourceforge.net/p/audacity/mailman/message/36863277/

When tarballs change (but version numbers do not), the standard recommendation is covered here in the Porters Handbook:

https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/book.html#dads-rerolling-distfiles

In particular, this part is marked as IMPORTANT, and needs to be included here, and likely the primary contributor to the delay getting this change committed:

"Be sure to summarize the differences in the PR and commit log, so that other people know that nothing bad has happened."

If you can provide that information, it will go a long way to progressing resolution of this issue.

I had reported to audacity that the version showed as 2.3.3-alpha in the release tarball. When the tar changed, I rebuilt it and it now shows as 2.3.3 release. The old tar is no longer available to download so I can't do a diff but clearly the release version changed from alpha to release in the about.

distcache.FreeBSD.org still has SHA256 (audacity-audacity-Audacity-2.3.3_GH0.tar.gz) = 9ab6c8989e21165b86aad80b7e6691015cb5b0c91ab77e6170d7192f840313a8 file.
The difference between 9ab6c8989e21165b86aad80b7e6691015cb5b0c91ab77e6170d7192f840313a8 and 404e6c49693dedc94212fc5525974058d848536025e19da31359ae02babe8bd7 is the same diff as git diff eb2161d 008d8d8
