means that, contrary to what the comment says, lack of LIC_FILES_CHKSUM
is now a fatal error.  Was this a deliberate change or an oversight?

It was a deliberate change, the comment was missed in the change though.

Yes, its annoying and we can have some way to turn it off but for at
least the core, having them present is a good thing.

Even if this check doesn't treat this as fatal, my experience has
been that do_configure() fails if LIC_FILES_CHKSUM is missing.
