That means that the md5 signature/sum/hash of the downloaded file didnt match with the one available in the distinfo file. (Actually it`s clearly stated in the error message)

I`d suggest:

1) update your ports collection via cvs.
2) Remove the downloaded file - rm -rf /usr/ports/distfiles/*downloaded pkg*.tgz
3) try compiling the desired port again. 

if you still have this problem, give us a shout again:)

that might lead to a secudity risk/atack/blah/blah/whatsoever.
