[EMBOSS] DB - finding out how many sequences

Does any of the EMBOSS apps output the number of sequences that it has searched?

I am after this figure as I have a data library issue.

Some sequences are "not found" by EMBOSS even though I know they are in the original flat files.

I am trying to figure out if this is

configure problem
data problem
indexing problem.

The indexing with dbiflat doesnt complain but I would like to be able to check my input number of sequences with what EMBOSS thinks was output.
