the passwd file update functions in "libutil" don't support using a
directory other than "/etc" for the password database. I would like
to add a new function "pw_prefix(3)" which can be used to set the
prefix. This function could e.g. be used to enhance "vipw" and
"rpc.yppasswdd" to work with directories != "/etc".


	Kind regards
