Heh. You got the debs, you don't need the md5sum trickery. Try
something like this:
__> ar p /usr/local/src/arch/packages/debian--0.1/mailagent/mailagent_3.73-9_i386.deb data.tar.gz | tar zfd - | grep 'Contents differ'
With the appropriate .deb, of course. Doing this with
the control tar is left as an exercise for the reader.
