 bee% grep -i md5 /var/cache/debconf/config.dat
 Name: console-data/bootmap-md5sum
 Template: console-data/bootmap-md5sum
 Name: passwd/md5
 Template: passwd/md5

 But "dpkg-reconfigure passwd" only prompts for shadow passwords, not
 for MD5 versus Crypt.  It seems MD5 is the default now, and the
 changelog confirms this:
 shadow (1:4.0.3-19) unstable; urgency=low
   * "No really, assume md5 passwords". Closes: #223664

 (Have a look at #223664 if you want more details.)
