This depends a bit on whether you are on Mac or Linux, on linux you have (GNU) md5sum which is a bit more powerful than the md5 program (found in BSD/MacOS). Try man md5sum. Doing md5sum -c md5sums.txt with all the files in the same directory and md5sums.txt containing the filenames and corresponding md5sums as downloaded from NCBI should do the trick in linux.
