I think it should "just work" for the pkgsrc version also - at least, I've
used programs on non-md5-crypt machines, and moved them over to my NetBSD
machine which uses md5, and crypt() seems to recognize what type of password
hashing was used and act accordingly. (ie a database that had DES passwords
still works fine, and I can put MD5 passwords in it and it still works)
