Sorry for taking so long to answer, but I wasn't the person producing the
checksum, so I had to ask too. The command used to produce the checksum is:
$ md5 -r <filename>

FreeBSD release version is the same as yours. I've just tested the same
command with FreeBSD 6.2, and it only outputs one space too.
