Bug#43107: md5sum manpage example is lame; here's a better one
The current example text involves calculating the md5sum of md5sum.1.
This is impossible (at least until MD5 is really broken).
A better example:

+++ md5sum.1 Tue Aug 17 07:02:03 1999

-So, for example, a file containing checksum for this manpage would look
-like(don't worry, if the checkusum doesn't match, there is a minor
-problem in keeping it up to date):
+So, for example, if a file was created and its message digest calculated
+.B echo foo > md5-test-file; md5sum md5-test-file

Be more verbose. Print filenames when checking (with -c).
