Enabling checksum for individual files?

Hi all,

I tried to use rsync-2.6.2 to sync a set of subdirectories inside a
directory. While most of the files are being sync'd correctly, rsync
seems to wrongly consider one file as uptodate. Both the source and
destination have this file, with the same size and same date (according
ls says). But md5sum shows that they are different.

One possible solution is to enable the checksum, but it is extremely
slow and unacceptable in my application. Therefore, I want to know if I
can enable the checksum for individual files. I want to have all the
files sync'd in one rsync operation, but with checksum enabled for only
one of the files.

Is it possible?
