No, I'm not. You included md5c.c and md5.h, which contain generic MD5 
code, as they should. The file I included, util_md5 (which I am currently 
rewriting using only the RSA code in RFC 1321), contains some code that 
uses the functions in md5c.c and md5.h to do some generic things like 
make MD5 hashes out of strings and files. It's not duplication.

I hope to have a new version of the modifications available later this 
evening. And I may take out the Content-MD5 header stuff. Does anyone see 
any real use for this? There isn't any real description I could find 
anywhere, save an example in the HTTP 1.1 draft (the actual section on 
Content-MD5 is marked "TBS"), so I'm a bit wary of including it. I only 
did because NCSA 1.5.1 has it, albiet only active with a #define. We can 
always put it back later, yes?
