My experience thus far has been similar.  shadow-4.0.0 seems to compile and 
work fine if you leave out --enable-shared.

I was looking to try and find a fix for a few minutes, but it looks like 
libmisc needs the missing functions which are in libshadow.  libshadow looks 
like it relies on libmisc.  Oops.  :-)
