BTW we should check for crypt_r() -- not sure if the API signature is

Little point in that... it's all behind a mutex anyways.

Sure, but: plugins may call crypt() without being access to slapd's
mutex (we have one that does).

Then, a better solution would be to provide a slapi_int_crypt() that provides the service with the same protection used inside slapd...
