Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for cad category

Problems found with existing distfile for eagle:
	distfiles/eagle-lin32-7.4.0.run
No changes made to eagle/distinfo file.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
