libpq implements it properly. I'd suggest looking at the client source.
Also, I *think* I have this working correctly in my PQueue module, so if you
don't mind a little Python:
pw = md5.new(self.password + self.keywords['user']).hexdigest()
pw = 'md5' + md5.new(pw + authmsg.salt).hexdigest()
self.password is the password given by the user.
self.keywords['user'] is the user name.
authmsg.salt is the salt given by the server.
Where 'pw' is sent back to the server in a Password message.
(mrm, can't remember if/when I tested this.. =\)
