 I filed lib/56838 on this.
 It turns out it only affects the static libcrypt (it plays ELF
 visibility games, which only affect the shared library image) so the
 following should serve as a workaround.
 I'm going to leave this PR open until it becomes clear whether this
 is going to be broken in -10 or not, in which case we'll need the
 workaround in pkgsrc.
 Although maybe it's a good change to have anyway, since the only
 reason elm is using the static libcrypt is that its configury is from
 about 1994. :-|
 (do you really still use elm? I held out for a long time but gave up
 and switched to mutt some time ago... if you do, I might go tidy all
 the build warnings)
