[software enchancements] change crypt to osf1_bigcrypt (ITS#1085)

Full_Name: Gerald Hochegger

OS: linux-2.2.18
URL: ftp://ftp.uni-klu.ac.at/pub/local/RPM/SOURCES/openldap-2.0.4-passwd.bigcrypt.patch
Submission from: (NULL) (

This small patch modifies the crypt calls in
libraries/liblutil/passwd.c to osf1_bigcrypt calls. osf1_bigcrypt is used on
Compaq Tru64 Unix. osf1_bigcrypt allows you to use longer passwords and is
compatible to crypt if the password is <= 8 chars.
This is useful if you want to migrate passwords from Tru64 to OpenLDAP.
The osf1_bigcrypt algorithm is borrowed from SAMBA (and slightly modyfied).
You can find SPECS, SOURCES, SRPMS under ftp://ftp.uni-klu.ac.at/pub/local/RPM
