debsums_init - Initialize md5sums files for packages lacking them
debsums_init will look for packages that did not install their md5sums
files. Then, it will generate those md5sums files from the binary
packages downloaded via APT if available.
This initialization process is needed since there are many packages
which do not ship md5sums file in their binary packages. If you enable
auto-gen option while installing debsum package, you need to run this
debsums_init command only once after you install the debsums package.
debsums_init needs to be invoked as superuser.
You may wish to clear local package cache prior to running debsums_init
command to make sure you are creating from the untainted packages by
