Therefor I have purchased a complete set of installation DVDs.
I require that the MD5SUMS (etc) of the generated file match the original.
I went thru this a few years ago so I know care must be taken to
exactly match the file size.
The solutions I was given at the time revolved around using "isoinfo".

I've gone in circles trying to find a package including it in
*current* Debian repository.
Is it available? If so where?
Is there a recommended alternative procedure?
Hm. There seem to be several 'isoinfo' (I'm assuming that isoinfo is
what your 'it' refers to):
tomas@trotzki:~$ apt-file search isoinfo
I guess you're looking for the one in package 'genisoimage'. But my
crystal ball is somewhat cloudy...
I hadn't thought of using "apt-file search ***".
