Libpng port won't build do to checksum failures on the patch files.
Marked as serious/high because a HEAP of stuff depends on this!
[Yes, I've removed the distfiles and refetched, and cvsup'd the port, and

Not sure of the providence of the patch files, but try "make makesum"
doesn't actually help - the patch files don't apply properly.
