Within the last few days postinstall started failing the pwd.db version

This is caused by output like:

 # db -q -Sb -Ub -To -N hash /etc/pwd.db 'VERSION\0'
 VERSION\000\000 \000\000\000\001V

while expected output would be:
 VERSION\000 \000\000\000\001

or, like on this older and different byte order system:

 # db -q -Sb -Ub -To -N hash /etc/pwd.db 'VERSION\0'
 VERSION\000     \001\000\000\000
