Since buildinstall doesn't create the ISO images, it would be hard for
the md5sums to be implanted in ISOs by it.  Both programs are trivial to
use though...  `./implantisomd5sum <name of image>` just like the usage
message says.  Similar for checkisomd5.

Wacky internal build system fun that handles going to remote machines
based on architecture so the various architecture dependent bits can be
run on a machine of the right architecture.
