NetBSD is my first choice when it comes to UNIX-like systems.
I am wondering if NetBSD will offer a crypt() other than than
standard 56 bit DES (correct me if this is not what is used).

It would be nice to be able to have passwords longer than 8 
chars.  What all is involved in replacing the current crypt()
with another one hash function?  just swapping crypt() in libc?
and rebuilding any static binaries that call crypt()?
