Look for mtree(8), which is what is used on *BSD (but not linux oddly)
to verify file digests.
You don't need rpmmtree to use RPM: its included with RPM because
1) its a useful utility that linux has chosen to ignore
2) mtree uses fts(3) (which is used several places in RPM code)
and provides a simple standalone test framework.
