I don't know what .sig file do you refer to but some time ago there was 
a discussion about such validations on ports at . There was a diff for 
bsd.port.mk to add such checks and it has been never committed but some 
people started to add snippets to individual ports. The consensus was 
that we removed these snippets relying on so@ opinion, which said that 
these .sig files don't provide further advantages over our MD5/SHA256

Yes, those seem to be unnecessary.

I've applied the patch on a working copy. It applies fine and there are 
no portlint warnings. I haven't had time to do further review and test, 
though. If you feel like, you can take the PR, it seems that you are 
more familiar with the port and the whole subject, in general.

Best wishes,
