I suggest a quick hack initially.  Add a static (local to file)
variable to liblutil/passwd.c which holds a point to a format
string (default to NULL) and then code to check if the generate
crypt() password function.  If NULL, do what we do today.  Otherwise,
generate a 16 character long, base64 salt string and snprintf it
into the salt to be passed to crypt using the specified format.  And
an access function which sets the static variable.

In slapd, hack config.c to have an directive which sets the
format via an access function.
