Default packages with E: md5sum-mismatch in the archive (was: mass bug filing about packages manipulating/deleting shipped files)

Actually, we have lintian errors on the packages in the archive:

E: guile-1.6-libs: md5sum-mismatch usr/lib/libguile-srfi-srfi-4-v-1.la
E: guile-1.6-libs: md5sum-mismatch usr/lib/libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1.la
E: guile-1.6-libs: md5sum-mismatch usr/lib/libguilereadline-v-12.la
E: guile-1.6-dev: md5sum-mismatch usr/lib/libguile-ltdl.la
E: guile-1.6-dev: md5sum-mismatch usr/lib/libguile.la

I tried rebuilding guile-1.6 in a clean sid pbuilder chroot on amd64
and could not reproduce the error. So a binNMU might be sufficient to
fix this. And it's the md5sum that is wrong, the .la files don't change
after the rebuild.

But the more important question is: how can it happen that such broken
packages enter the archive?

Shouldn't md5sum-mismatch be in ftp-master-auto-reject.profile?

Can someone do a lintian check for just this tag on the whole archive,
all architectures, all releases? That's just *.deb on a full mirror :-)
And ports should be checked, too.
