I once wrote a little perl script that does it the other way round:
Compare all files listed in /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.md5sums with their
versions currently stored in the real filesystem.
But it takes some time to run: something between 5 and 10 minutes to check
about 500 MB on my AMD K6-266 with a DCAS SCSI disk.
If you're interested in it, just tell me.
