Is there such thing as a 'soft checksum' tool?

I've seen such tools advertised, but they were proprietary products and 
only worked on windows.

One way you could approach it might be to use a blur filter to blur each 
of your images, and then to compare the blurred images.  Small 
differences in individual pixels would be blurred away.
