On my Debian/Potato it did not.

It reported to me, that tv is unknown size. I checked in /usr/include
and found no file containing timeval struct. Only info about it in
time.h (that timespec is similar, but it uses nanosec, not microsec), so
I changed some lines. I hope it works, because I compiled before adding
#ifdef's in some places (but I changed every usec to nsec, etc.).

Why timespec is wrong? It's a substitute (it's said like that in time.h)
according to POSIX.4 (AFAIR, because I'm using Wimdows right now and
can't check for sure).
Anyway - You are right, passwords created using makepasswd are usually
impossible to say. However it would be nice to include other languages
schemes also. ;)
