I get a different MD5 every time I download this file, it doesn't
matter if I use Firefox, wget or curl.  Only first few bytes and some
bytes later in the file are the same in all downloaded files and the
first two bytes are 0x1f8b which is a correct magic number for tar.gz
files.  What is interesting all these files contain the same files
with the same MD5 sums.  I guess that the server somehow modifies the
tarballs before sending them.  Wget with --save-headers says that
repo.or.cz is served by Apache so they may run a modified version of
Apache or use a plugin.

I'd like to know what's going on here too.
