please have a look on your FETCHCOMMAND / RESUMECOMMAND in /etc/make.conf. 

(emerge --info -v | grep COMMAND)

FETCHCOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -t 5 --passive-ftp -P ${DISTDIR} ${URI}"
RESUMECOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -c -t 5 --passive-ftp -P ${DISTDIR} ${URI}"

You should be really sure, thaht you have removed any old files from 
your /distfiles dir. I had also strange problems with a wrong RESUMECOMMAND 
and partilly download files.

To get an idea what is wrong, try to download a small packages.
Please make an emerge -f app-admin/perl-cleaner.
After that compare the 
digest  /usr/portage/app-admin/perl-cleaner/files/digest-perl-cleaner-1.01 
with thhe downloaded file.
cd /usr/portage/distfiles
md5sum perl-cleaner-1.01.tar.gz
a657d9e9264cd9f550bd2c55c1220785  perl-cleaner-1.01.tar.gz
ls -l perl-cleaner-1.01.tar.gz 
I hope this will clarify, if you have problem with downloading the file or 
with gzip/md5sum. 

Best regards Joerg
