Does your bind8 port actually work?

I cvsupped from cvsup.freebsd.org and downloaded the distfiles from
ftp.freebsd.org and I'm getting checksum mismatches (bypassing causes
patch failure) - so I simply can't get the port to go ahead and
compile/install.. - I also tried rm'ing the bind8 directory and freshly
cvsupping it - no go.
