There's a FEATURES flag somewhere that makes portage fetch all distfiles that
might be needed for any combination of use flags. We use it to generate
digests that include md5sums for all files. I'm not sure which one it is;
possibly the 'digest' one, in which case portage will ignore bad digests, so
be careful :-)
