What? The source is the same, stored on a server, therefore its md5sum
WILL NOT change everytime you run 'makepkg -g' unless you are running
'makepkg -g' for different sources or your source is corrupted. In the
last case, remove and download again the source.

$ md5sum iceweasel-libre-12.0.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
