Have you checked that these are substantially the same files with
respect to content & copyright and not just files with a common name?
(Yes, this is a very large undertaking, so I haven't done it either.)

There are plenty of hits for md5.c but there are also plenty of
differing implementations of md5 sum calculations with differing
copyright implementations.

Just because a filename is reused doesn't mean that the packages
put the same code into that filename.
