[blfs-dev] Problem in shadow

The explanation is for command:
    <para><command>sed -i -e 's@#ENCRYPT_METHOD DES at ENCRYPT_METHOD MD5@'
's@/var/spool/mail@/var/mail@'. But the command which is used actually
is:     <para><command>sed -i -e 's@#ENCRYPT_METHOD DES at ENCRYPT_METHOD
SHA512@' 's@/var/spool/mail@/var/mail@'

So explanation and explained command mismatch. Either, in Command
Explanation, the bool should mention:     <para><command>sed -i -e
's@#ENCRYPT_METHOD DES at ENCRYPT_METHOD SHA512@'
's@/var/spool/mail@/var/mail@'

or earlier in the instructions, the command should be with MD5 instead
of SHA512, so that both match.
