makepkg --printsrcinfo does not compute anything, it just extracts the 
information from the PKGBUILD file. This is used to generate the .SRCINFO file.

makepkg --geninteg, on the other hand, downloads all the files in source array, 
computes the checksums and prints them. But it does not modify the PKGBUILD 

So the different outputs are due to discrepancies between the hashes you 
computed locally and the ones in the PKGBUILD specified by the maintainer of 
that package in AUR.

Probably he forgot to add the PKGBUILD file to his last commit because he 
modified the .SRCINFO with the right hash.

Leave him a comment in AUR.
