New NSS feature in Glibc's libcrypt

Fedora people are making some effort to use NSS exclusively, and stop using 

Fedora itself is not doing this yet.

Curl already supports NSS.

I tried twice to get NSS support in Glibc. The first time succeeded, but I 
installed much of the final system first, for NSS dependencies, and then 
reinstalled Glibc. The second time, I installed NSS to /tools, and 
symbolically linked the libraries and headers to /usr, and I ended up with 
segmentation faults from libcrypt.
