CPANTS noticed that Carp, File::Spec and Digest::MD5 weren't mentioned as part of the prereqs. The first commit in this PR should fix that issue. The second commit sorts the prereqs alphabetically so that it's a bit easier to find and/or add prereqs.

Add missing prereqs to build config
It turns out to be good practice to mention all of the prereqs for a
distribution, even if the modules are part of Perl core.  This issue was
noticed by CPANTS as part of the `prereq_matches_use` kwalitee metric.
Sort prereqs alphabetically
... which makes it a bit easier to what is where and where new prereqs
should be added.

All 3 modules are (or were, ime) part of the core perl distribution so I've not bothered listing them in any of my modules. But I suppose it doesn't hurt.

Yeah, I've always wondered at the utility of specifying core Perl modules in the prereqs list. However, I've seen this more and more that even core modules are being specified, so it looks like it's part of current best practices. My guess is that a core module could become "noncore" at some point in the future, so (like you say) it doesn't hurt to specify them. Thanks for the fast merge!
