Yeah, seems like everyone is trying to overcomplicate this.
I'm not sure about the BSD version, but the gnu version has a -c option to
read a checksum file, and verify any filenames listed in the file:
$ md5sum -c banana.wav.md5
banana.wav: OK

The check function will read as many lines as there are checksum lines in
the file, so you can have an entire directory worth of files checked with
one command.
