To me: -f means force, which means ignore errors and keep going, which
means checksum errors don't matter.

The help should definitely be written clearer.

This is one reason I am trying to document what abuild does, instead
of what abuild says it will do. That is also why it is taking me so
long to actually write the manpages.
