Subject: can't change password under 1.5_ALPHA without kerberos

I don't use kerberos and I even don't know how to configure it. This
has never been a problem, except that now the passwd command fails:

bluenote% passwd
passwd: failed to parse principal: Configuration file does not specify default realm
Exit 1

I've found this using a newly installed  1.5_ALPHA macppc snapshot
(from 06/20) and also on my i386 machine that's tracking 1.5_ALPHA
from sources with sup. 

Is there a simple workaround (other than manually encrypting the
passwd and inserting it in master.passwd with vipw as root) or should
I file a PR ?
