I dunno, it doesn't seem to be part of my FreeBSD system (nor has it ever been in FreeBSD, afaik). Are you sure you didnt run that command on a Linux system by mistake? The md5 utility is called md5 in FreeBSD, and "apropos md5" correctly returns for me: md5(1), sha1(1), sha256(1), rmd160(1) - calculate a message-digest fingerprint (checksum) for a file Kris
