+ version: checkpassword 0.80, beta.
+19981121
+ portability problem: some Linux systems _simultaneously_ support
+ shadow passwords and non-shadow passwords. impact:
+ checkpassword would see only the shadow passwords. fix:
+ in doit(), use getpwnam() password if getspnam() fails
+ (except with ETXTBSY). tnx to several people.
+ portability problem: AIX needs -ls for getuserpw(). impact:
+ couldn't compile. fix: check for -ls; also use in
+ hasuserpw.h.
+ portability problem: some systems incorrectly return EISDIR for
+ mkdir("/",...). impact: couldn't install. fix: don't
+ bother installing anything except checkpassword.
+ version: checkpassword 0.81, beta.
+20001115
+ portability problem: PAM-based systems can put 0 into pw_passwd.
+ nitwits. impact: checkpassword inspects *0 and crashes.
+ fix: check for 0 and use "*" instead. tnx Sverre.

+ internal: switched to new install system.
+ internal: prototypes.
+ internal: incorporated doit() into main().
+ internal: switched to pathexec and friends.
+ version: checkpassword 0.90, gamma.
