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
   engrampa: /usr/lib/engrampa/engrampa/isoinfo.sh
   file-roller: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/file-roller/isoinfo.sh
   genisoimage: /usr/bin/isoinfo
   genisoimage: /usr/share/man/man1/isoinfo.1.gz
   libguestfs-gobject-dev: /usr/include/guestfs-gobject/struct-isoinfo.h
   manpages-ja: /usr/share/man/ja/man8/isoinfo.8.gz
   manpages-pl: /usr/share/man/pl/man1/isoinfo.1.gz
   patool: /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/patoolib/programs/isoinfo.py
   patool: /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/patoolib/programs/isoinfo.py

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 ***".
Thanks
