Checking an .ffp file is a bit more difficult, because of differences in OS text formatting, and the fact that every frontend out there throws in their own superfluous text. Otherwise, if it's a *nix formatted .ffp file generated as above, you'd only need to use the cmp (compare) command, something like:

cmp filename.ffp <(metaflac --show-md5sum *.flac)

I'll leave it to someone more qualified to come up with a solution for "every" possible situation (my own script just greps the checksums).
