Looks like AIX chose to release OS-specific versions of modules...?
Interesting idea; it would avoid the problem of CPAN-installed modules
overwriting whatever they shipped, but having that extra "aix::"
appended to the beginning is a pain...

I'd have to guess that their aix::Digest::MD5 module is based on the
standard Digest::MD5 and wouldn't vary too much from the standard
interface.  If so, it should work just fine, except that you'll have
add "aix::Digest::MD5" to the line in Cons where it looks for the
Digest::MD5 and MD5 modules.
