If this is the only example we're going to add, I think we're setting a
very poor standard. Checksums should always come from upstream, or else
they don't have much meaning. There was a lot of discussion here (6/10)
with no real constructive outcome other than -- "we're not really sure
we want this in makepkg's manpage":

We have a whole manpage for this, and its linked in the SEE ALSO section
of makepkg(8). I don't think this is needed. Seems inline with Allan's
comments from above.

And as I already mentioned, this is in the pacman manpage installed on
your system today.
