pkg ‘hidden’ switch

Pkg on FreeBSD 10 seems to have a “hidden” switch/option.
If you’re getting the “failed checksum from repository” when trying to install a package, try doing and update with the -f switch.
# pkg update -f
I assume that stands for “force” and will force a download of the index from the repository.
