Valid Group Names

When I build I use the "More control and Package Users" management
system. Each time I have built an LFS system, after I install Shadow, I
cannot use the actual package name for a user or group. For example,
rsyslog-4.4.1. This has not been important to me until this build
during which I have written a script for all my builds. It's highly
dependent on $(whoami).
I'm looking for a way to change this behavior. The man page for
groupadd indicates that group names can contain only $ and _. I find it
interesting that I can use '.' before shadow, but I can't find anyway to
change the behavior.
