Bug#250281: md5sum(1) says "asterix", means "asterisk"

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.21
Severity: minor

       -b     Use binary mode. In unix environment,  only  difference  between
              this and the normal mode is an asterix preceding the filename in
              the output.

An asterisk is the '*' character.  Asterix is, apparently, a cartoon character.
