System: NetBSD polaris 1.5.1 NetBSD 1.5.1 (POLARIS) #2: Tue Nov 6 16:00:08 MST 2001 root@polaris:/usr/src/1.5.1/sys/arch/i386/compile/POLARIS i386
If you run useradd -D as root, and you do not have a usermgmt.conf file, it
creates one. This is not documented as a side effect in the manpage.
In addition, it would be nice if there was a way to shut this feature off, ie,
to look without touching.
Add an additional option to stop creation of the usermgmt.conf file.
Document the fact that -D creates one by default.
