Few reasons, one has been because libmd is more generic than something
like libsbuf and it's prone to be used more widely than anything in
freebsd-libs, so it might make sense to promote it to standard or
higher for example. The other reason is that the licenses in the
FreeBSD tree are a bit unfortunate so my plan is to use the OpenBSD
implementation instead.

Just have to commit my latest changes.
