PPM seems to have Digest-Perl-MD5 now.

In the PPM shell, enter install Digest-Perl-MD5

I'm running ActivePerl 5.6, not 5.8, so maybe they haven't added it to the 5.8 repository.
Nothing has happened on this question in over 7 months. It's time for cleanup!

My recommendation, which I will post in the Cleanup topic area, is to
