This is the correct solution. Make sure you install the DES libs
in the crypt section of the "Distributions". Then
For the passwd programs pwd_mkdb(8),vipw(8)
to work correctly, one needs DES library links in /usr/lib,
if they are not setup. There are 2 real libs,
descrypt and scrypt.
You need this setup:
else you will see the "long" MD5 passwords used.
Then insert your original master.passwd, and rerun the program
to generate the binary database.
pwd_mkdb -p master.passwd
