add ability to skip hash verification

Addresses paraview#19534 (closed)

Overriding downloaded archives

On rare occasions, you may want to replace a downloaded archive with a different version. You may replace the archive with a newer version preserving its name, however, on doing so, the hash verification will most likely fail during the build step. To skip the hash verification for archives that have been manually changed, set the xxx_SKIP_VERIFICATION option, where xxx is the name of the project. xxx_SKIP_VERIFICATION must be passed on command line when invoking CMake using -Dxxx_SKIP_VERIFICATION:BOOL=TRUE.

Alternatively, you can edit the versions.cmake files in the source repository and modify the URL_MDF5 or URL_HASH values for the specific project with updated hashes.
