.a file can be decompile ?

Hello to everyone I wonder if exist a way to open a .a file (decompile), why I'm asking this ?? it's because a provider develop a security library five years ago who generates a MD5 string that's we use like a part of a certificate.

When i recompile the library in 64 bits with a old backup file this generates a different MD5 string my old version its running on 32 bits of AIX and my new one in 64
We discover with the special characters like Ñ (we are in Mexico) generates a different MD5 string than the actual .a file in 32 bits. I thing the code isn't the same. That's the reason why i need to open or decompile a library .a to extract the correct version.
