 Instead of adding a program to generate the password hash, document in the
 ckpasswd man page shipped with INN how to generate such password hashes.

 Fixed in INN 2.5.4 with commit [9489]:

  INN does not come with a utility to create the encrypted passwords, but
 htpasswd (which comes with Apache) can do so and it's a quick job with
 Perl (see the example script under -d, or also below). If using Apache's
 htpasswd program, be sure to give it the -d option so that it will use

  A line in filename for the user user with the password pass would be
 user:LIfOpbjNaEQYE as obtained by the following commands:

     % htpasswd -nbd user pass

     % perl -e 'print "user:".crypt("pass", "LI")."\n";'
