I got the same checksum results as you. I downloaded the bzip2 tarball
again and rebuilt the package, this time the checksums match. I am not
sure what caused the original mismatch. The latest build is on Debian

Another problem I have is that skim-1.2.3 will frequently crash after
loading, I'm not sure if it is related to the packaging, any help
testing it would be appreciated.
