I thought this might be it, but wanted to get confirmation.

p5-Crypt-CBC is not of my doing ;-)

$ grep MAINTAINER /usr/pkgsrc/security/p5-Crypt-CBC/Makefile

$ grep NetBSD /usr/pkgsrc/security/p5-Crypt-CBC/Makefile
# $NetBSD: Makefile,v 1.3 2001/02/17 17:49:58 wiz Exp $

My impression is that the upstream Crypt::CBC may need updating.

FWIW, the errors went away when I modified:

   Makefile.PL - to look for Digest::MD5 instead of MD5 - "use MD5;" -> "use Digest::MD5"

I'm not sure if that's enough though.

Should I send a pr for this?
