The software is not mine, but I committed the following hack
to have it compile:

        h x = MD5.md5s (MD5.Str x)
        {- h = IOExts.unsafePerformIO . MD5.digest -}

ie. commented out the second line instead of the first.  I
don't care about authentication, so I don't know if it
actually works...
