bug#7243: [patch] making md5sum's warnings clearer

Two years ago I complained about the untranslatability of the warnings
that md5sum prints when it has encountered unexpected things:

Jim asked to come up with a change that doesn't remove information.
I've finally gotten around to making this -- see the attached patch.
In addition to read failures and checksum failures, md5sum now alerts
the user to the number of misformatted checksum lines.  It prints this
line also when '--warn' is not given, because it is so important.
