Wouldn't a few shell aliases--"alias md2 'openssl dgst -md2'"  and so
on--work just as well?

OpenSSL was added to cryptosrc in June of 1999.

I suppose having the digest utility and the extended cksum is nice for
people who are prohibited from using the cryptosrc stuff, or (such as you)
who need to run a version of NetBSD from before 1999.  It just seemed a
bit redundant until I understood your reasoning. Cheers.
