Look at

debian-installer cvs: build/mirror-check

once the cvs and accounts come back and I can check the script in. I'm
using that to check the partial archive constructed for the d-i cdrom
image which is identical to the debian archive, just smaller.

Maybe someone will package it or maybe there already is a script
