Technically, someone can use an 8 bits counter and reset it when its count reaches one hundred. That reset signal can then be used to toggle (with a flipflop, or otherwise) the output at a frequency which is a hundred times less the clock input frequency.

One of the problems, though, is that even a 74HC590 is at the limit for your clock, for some voltage and some temperature.

Only discussed pins of the 74HC530 are shown. Other pins should be wired accordingly to the datasheet's specs.
