   md5 passwords is a feature of the the crypt() function in glibc.
   Worked fine last time I tried it (ok, that wasn't on the hurd, but I
   see no reason why that part of glibc should be system dependent).

   To configure your system to actually *use* md5 passwords is a question
   of using the right magic salt when creating new password entries,
   which probably requires some level of support in the passwd program.
