I see you moved the HAVE_BSD_AUTH check, but I don't understand how this
is supposed to resolve the issue I had -- the machine I'm using is a
Linux machine. The getuid(3) and getpwuid(3) functions work fine because
they're implemented in glibc which supports NSS. The problem is the
"getpw" (which calls getspnam(3)) function which fails with "cannot
retrieve shadow entry."
