Done both. I committed rab80d43 which I want to get into Testing
(waiting a bit for you to comment before uploading, however) and
r28a921f for 2.4 which drops the tool entirely.

Digest::MD5 is, but dbmmanage uses Crypt::PasswdMD5 which is not
API-compatible to Digest::MD5. That needs (a bit) more work to get it
running in the perl base distribution.

Thus, users of MD5 will get a warning to install the appropriate
modules. I improved the message though, so that the Debian package name
is told.

with kind regards,
