Well, it actually is the same issue, but from the other end, so to speak.

The md5sum on SBo is incorrect because it's the md5sum of the file after
wget "helpfully" decompressed it. When I updated the build, I didn't have
"compression = none" in wgetrc, and didn't notice that the file I was
working with was an uncompressed tarball.

It's now fixed in my git branch.

...also note that if you had wget-1.19.2 and didn't have 'compression
= none' in wgetrc, the md5sum would have appeared to be correct. This
is why it's so annoying to me to have this problem: I only get to put
one md5sum in my .info file (in this case, I put the *wrong* one), but
depending on the user's version of wget, that md5sum will appear wrong
to someone, no matter which I choose.
