CRC -> MD5

We can drop the new CRC code in back-ldif in favor of the stronger MD5
from liblutil.  They have the same speed on my host: CRC is simpler,
but memory-bound.  CRC guarantees to catch certain transmission errors
like a few wrong bits, but this comes at the expense of its quality as
a general hash function.
Or we could use a slower SHA function, but I figure MD5 is already
stronger than we need.
