Sun's buggy MD5?

Here's something fun to do on Solaris 2.3 or 2.4.  Notice the
similarity among the Solaris md5 output. Anyone know why this is?

The Sun service folk weren't able to point me to a Solaris bug-report
email address. I had a similar experience looking through www.sun.com.
Pointers are welcomed.

    A program which uses md5 from a dynamically linked
    (or loaded) library and the nsl library is loaded before a
    ``standard'' md5 library will get md5 results different from the
    rest of the non-Solaris world.

    the non-Solaris md5 files are from RFC 1321.

    some test output has been deleted as it does not fit nicely on a
    standard message line.

    solmd5 seems to give slightly different output on different machines
    and greatly different output with different compilers

    the nsl library is required on Solaris 2.4 when using sockets.

    /usr/include/sys/ppp_chap.h includes a slightly modified---mainly
    names---version of md5.h.

% gcc -o md5 mddriver.c md5c.c 
% gcc -o solmd5 mddriver.c -lnsl
% ./md5 -x
