Why would a call to crypt for password authentication in an application,
return matching results in NetBSD 1.2.1, and mismatching results in 1.3.2,
even when the app is re-built under 1.3.2.

crypt(pwd)=XQxQcWeBlFZkg doesn't match XQtYIu1Gtv6fY
                ^                           ^
                |                           |
returned from crypt for password given      |
returned from crypt for user simmons -------/

Also, XQtYIu1Gtv6fY is what shows for simmons using vipw.

Again, this works under NetBSD-1.2.1
