Hoi Adam,

What do you call recent? I was using TeXLive 2004, and the ConTeXt 
version available from this CD. Maybe that's already ancient, but good 
enough for me!

I've removed that one and installed TeXLive 2005! I was afraid of other 
problems, and indeed that's exactly what happened.

I assume that ConTeXt is setup properly after the TeXLive installation! 
After setting my PATH correctly I issued the command texexec from the 
command line.

The Perl script texexec doesn't launch!! I get the following Perl error 

Can't locate Digest/MD5.pm in @INC (@INC contains: 
/usr/local/lib/perl/5.6.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at 
/usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/scripts/context/perl/texexec.pl line 54.

This missing MD5.pm is present in the directory: 

So what should be my next move?
