Question pacman, yaourt, md5

Do pacman and yaourt automatically check md5sums after downloading packages from repos to install? Do all Arch packages in repos have md5?

I believe both Pacman and Yaourt run a check over downloaded packages. Pacman outputs this as 'Checking package integrity' - whether or not that's the check I can't say for sure, but it seems likely.
Since Yaourt just acts as a frontend for Pacman on normal package ops, it doesn't actually do any checking itself unless you're pulling in a PKGBUILD from the AUR - then it'll check, provided the md5sum or similar are provided within the PKGBUILD.
