Hi Constantin. This is a problem only with systems running glibc, because
for legal reasons the FSF doesn't want to include encryption as part of
glibc. I assume you are doing this on Debian or on Red Hat 5.x?

Perhaps we  need an extra template for glibc?  

I came across this problem too today (I am currently packaging 6.4 into an
RPM for Red Hat 5.2). I have generated a patch file which fixes the lack
of -lcrypt in a number of places for glibc systems. After I have
thoroughly tested it I'll try to post it here.

Thanks for the pointer. I will incorporate that as another patch in
the .spec file for my Red Hat RPM.
