You wouldn't, because there is no difference.  -nbX suffixes on pkgsrc
versions means that the change in the package was pkgsrc-specific, and the
actual software is unchanged; the changes are during the install process.

Looking at the package history, those pkgsrc-specific changes aren't going
to make a difference:


So, it's the same.  You can ignore it, delete it, or find the distfile
anywhere out there and stick it in /usr/pkgsrc/distfiles, I think, to get
it picked up and used when building in /usr/pkgsrc/fonts/cyberbit-ttf.
