This might seem like a big hammer for a small problem, but check out AIDE.

It's a tripwire like ( minus the silly licensing ) utility that will checksum files and directory trees and let you know about all changes. It's also configurable enough to ignore changes you aren't interested in.

Sample output:

AIDE found differences between database and filesystem!!
