Post How to install md5? Cannot find md5_calc!

During configuration of a mpi implemenation, I ran into a problem:

checking for setenv... yes
checking for md5_calc... no
checking for library containing uuid_generate... no
checking for poll stdin capability... yes
checking for library containing MD5... no
checking for MD5... no
checking for library containing md5_calc... no
checking for md5_calc function... no
configure: error: SMPD requires MD5 support, and configure could not
find either md5_calc in md5.h or MD5 in openssl/md5.h

However, I do have quite a few md5.h files under /usr directorys

such as

And when I used yast and searched for md5, I can see that the following components have been installed: libxcrypt, libxcrypt-32, cyrus-sasl-crammd5, cyrus-sasl-digestmd5.

Anybody have any suggestion on where I can find a package contains md5_calc and how to install it?

Thanks a lot!

Yes, when you ask question you need to either post that information with the question or add it to your profile. Each version of Linux is slightly different. You should also add 32 or 64 bit version. I do not use suse so I would be of only limited assistance.
