For recent (post-oldstable?) versions of findutils, you can use the
Single Unix Standard switch -exec {} +, for example:

    find >../md5sum.txt \
      -type f \
      -not -name isolinux/isolinux.bin \
      -not -name boot/grub/stage2_eltorito \
      -exec md5sum {} +

IIRC the Debian Policy requires /bin/sh to support echo -n, but not
echo -e.  If you want echo's -e switch, use /bin/echo.

You can use the posh and dash packages to test for sh compliance.
