Any system with perl installed should be able to run md5check and the code explictly makes some internal checks to work with Windows although I've never tried it.

Also, as a proof of concept a long time ago (back in the STG days) I patched md5check to check md5 files created by shntool. I've kept the patch up to date as Caleb as released new versions of md5check. Very easy to add support for the .st5 extension -- which I've just done -- if you're interested I could attach the script, or a patch file against the original script.
