The command like "rpm -Va" I believe it's debsums; ie:


$ rpm -vV ed
........    /bin/ed
........    /bin/red
........    /usr/share/doc/ed-0.2
........  d /usr/share/doc/ed-0.2/ChangeLog
........  d /usr/share/doc/ed-0.2/NEWS
........  d /usr/share/doc/ed-0.2/POSIX
........  d /usr/share/doc/ed-0.2/README
........  d /usr/share/doc/ed-0.2/THANKS
........  d /usr/share/doc/ed-0.2/TODO
........  d /usr/share/info/ed.info.gz
........  d /usr/share/man/man1/ed.1.gz
........  d /usr/share/man/man1/red.1.gz


$ debsums ed
/usr/share/man/man1/ed.1.gz                   OK
/usr/share/doc/ed/changelog.Debian.gz         OK
/usr/share/doc/ed/TODO                        OK
/usr/share/doc/ed/AUTHORS                     OK
/usr/share/doc/ed/copyright                   OK
/usr/share/doc/ed/changelog.gz                OK
/usr/share/doc/ed/NEWS.gz                     OK
/usr/share/doc/ed/README.gz                   OK
/usr/share/info/ed.info.gz                    OK
/bin/ed                                       OK


However I'm not sure the files inside a deb have permissions or are them 
set after unpacking them (forgive my ignorance :-) )
