Note that sbotools is a third party package not maintained by,  
endorsed by, or otherwise affiliated with SlackBuilds.org; if a  
SlackBuild installs normally when the SlackBuild is run manually, and  
fails using sboinstall, the situation should be reported not to this  
list but to the sbotools developers; you can find our contact  
information in any of the man pages included with sbotools, or in an  
obfuscated format on the sbotools site.

Regarding this, it is an unfortunate fact that with certain pieces of  
software it is more difficult than others to keep the md5sum in sync  
with the source download; in deciding how to handle this with  
sbotools, it seemed evident that in the case of an md5sum failure, the  
only course of action for the user is to either find a download that  
matches, or instead the non-matching source to determine its validity;  
hence the error, the question, and the resulting failure - and,  
equally, your ability to run the SlackBuild manually.

To put it concisely, this is the expected result for this condition.
