This is a long-standing issue with the BSD ports. I addressed the
problem by patching libc. You can find my source here:
There is also a whole bunch of code to support /etc/shadow here:
You'll need that to build base-passwd and shadow.
I basically copy those files into libc, and patch the relevent makefiles
to include them. I've got patches against FreeBSD you can look at if you
like. They're in the same repository, under debian/patches.
