Great!  I looked into pwd_mkdb.c and the db(3) man page, but I'd rather
leave it to someone who knows what he/she is doing... ;-)

Please let me know when a patch is available and I'll try it out right
away (a patch for NetBSD 1.3.3 would be the best for me).

Well, I can live with the patch until 1.5.

Now that 1.5 popped up - will it be another 2 years before it sees the
daylight? ;-)  (It would be nice to see new releases 1-2 times a year,
at least.. :)
