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
