One thing that came to me when catching up with this thread is that this
change of default will hose people setting up a YP server for the first
Even though YP passwords would be set to the old salted-DES style, a YP
server isn't set up until ypinit(8) is run and "make" is run in /var/yp.
This copies passwd entries from /etc/master.passwd into the YP maps -- which
won't use salted-DES crypto because of this change.
This should be taken into heavy consideration here.
