Yes, in PostgreSQL's source distribution(or CVS).


libpq-auth.c seems like a good place to start. Look for md5 in that file and
follow that around.

I guessed that you were developing a driver. If that is the case, then I am
pretty sure that that should be working. Additionally, make sure the password
you are trying works when you connect with trusty ol' psql.

If you are not writing a driver, then this should, imo, already be taken care of
[by the driver you are using].
