I'M building a Linux from Scratch system(www.linuxfromscratch.org) and I've run into a little confusion.

An easy way to download all of the packages and patches is by using wget-list as an input to wget. For example:
wget -i wget-list -P $LFS/sources
Additionally, starting with LFS-7.0, there is a separate file, md5sums, can be used to verify that all the correct packages
are available before proceeding. Place that file in $LFS/sources and run:
pushd $LFS/sources
md5sum -c md5sums

Where do I find this md5susm package for my LFS system? I don't really understand what it's wanting me to do here.

The md5sum is part of the coreutils which can be found & downloaded from this link: http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/
