I think i've tracked this now. The two first OpenSSL 0.9.7 betas  had removed 
the inclusion of all the other headers in <openssl/evp.h> this was reverted 
for beta 3. But the OpenBSD folk didn't like it so they removed the inclusion 

So we have that for OpenSSL versions < 0.9.7 the <openssl.evp.h> also includes 
<openssl/md5.h> as it does for betas >=3 (but not on OpenBSD). As otp.c 
wanted to use the openssl MD5 file and not the sasl's internal my previous 
patch was wrong. Just explicitly including <openssl/md5.h> seems a better 
solution as that's what we want. Possibly including this file twice shouldn't 
break anything.
