BLUE RIBBON AWARD to Toshihiro Kanda for the best solution (IMHO)!
Actually, this is not necessarily true. If you name them in the
description, mtree(8) will happily check regular files as well.
Indeed, the reason why I implemented the `md5sum' option a year ago
was with the hope that someone (i.e., Jordan) would take the hint and
add the appropriate mtree commands to the distribution builds so that
we can have a published reference for what the MD5s of all the
distributed files are supposed to be.
Oops! I'm sorry but I considered only /etc/mtree/* files in this
case. I should have say "/etc/mtree/* files will help you ..."
