Link problem with shadow-4.0.0

Hi. I think I have encountered an error in src/Makefile (or perhaps
lib/Makefile or configure?). I receive the following error when trying
to link src/.libs/groups:

gcc -ffast-math -mpentium -s -o .libs/groups groups.o  -L/usr/lib
../libmisc/.libs/ ../lib/.libs/ -lcrypt
../libmisc/.libs/ undefined reference to `utent'
../libmisc/.libs/ undefined reference to `pwent'
../libmisc/.libs/ undefined reference to `FascistCheck'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [groups] Error 1

I can add "-lcrack" to find the reference to "FascistCheck", but I
have not yet found symbols for utent/pwent. I am using glibc-2.4, and
Linux kernel 2.4.10-ac7. Can you tell me what to change, or fix the
configure/Makefile? Let me know if you need more info. Thanks.
