[rfc-i] re-rolling the RFCs0001-0500.tar.gz tarballs

Hello, I am working on creating a package of the RFCs for offline
reading.  However, I noticed that all of the tarballs are re-generated
every week, so the checksums change.  The port framework I use verifies
that the source tarball matches a registered checksum, so this will fail.

Is there a reason why the RFCs0001-0500.tar.gz tarballs change checksum?
Shouldn't they be static once filled?
