It can be done by passing a script argument named resource.
nmap --script http-staticfile.nse --script-args resource=/CHANGELOG.txt HOST

And alright, I'll work on integrating it with the http-enum database.

Right now the script takes a resource argument which will point out the
file which is to be hashed. A file containing the hashes for comparison
will be kept in the nselib/data folder. Code is here:
https://gist.github.com/Sp3ctr3/5786362 . The database file is available
here: https://gist.github.com/Sp3ctr3/5788511

I'm a bit confused by the database format at
https://gist.github.com/Sp3ctr3/5788511. The entries don't seem to have
the name of the file that should be hashed to get them. How does the
http-staticfile script at https://gist.github.com/Sp3ctr3/5786362 know
what files to request?

Anyway, I think this approach of a new database and new script is not
the best one. I would rather see the http-enum database augmented with a
new md5 match type. There's really no reason to have separate scripts
that differ only in how they match fingerprints.
