+To create a new package from scratch and let makepkg handle md5sums:
+   $ mkdir mypkg

Maybe you should switch dir to mypkg here

+   # create PKGBUILD with your favorite editor

We already have several links to PKGBUILD man page, maybe we do not
need to repeat it here.

+   $ makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD

You could add a quick one-line description : append integrity checks
at the end of the PKGBUILD

Note that this is not necessarily md5sums, it depends on the pkgbuild
and makepkg.conf :
       -g, --geninteg
           For each source file in the source array of PKGBUILD,
download the file if required and
           generate integrity checks. The integrity checks generated
are determined by the checks present
           in the PKGBUILD, falling back to the value of the
INTEGRITY_CHECK array in makepkg.conf(5) if
           these are absent This output can be redirected into your
PKGBUILD for source validation using
           "makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD".

+   $ makepkg
+	Package build description file in the *current* directory.
