I just failed to add a user using useradd(8) on a system which does
not have a /etc/login.conf; creating an empty file fixed the problem.
Yesterday's commit to src/usr.sbin/user/user.c changed this requirement.
Is login.conf required to exist now? If yes, this should be mentioned
in src/UPDATING, shouldn't it?

Cheers, Jukka
