7.6. Shadow-4.5

The Shadow package contains programs for handling passwords in a secure way.

7.6.1. Installation of Shadow

Disable the installation of the groups program and man pages, as better versions of these programs are provided by Coreutils, Util-linux and Man-pages. Also, prevent Shadow from setting the suid bit on its installed programs:

cp -v src/Makefile.in{,.orig}
sed -e 's/groups$(EXEEXT) //' \
    -e 's/\(^suidu*bins = \).*/\1\\/' \
    src/Makefile.in.orig > src/Makefile.in

Tell Shadow to use passwd in /tools/bin:

cat > config.cache << "EOF"

Prepare Shadow for compilation:

./configure \
    --prefix=/tools \
    --build=${CLFS_HOST} \
    --host=${CLFS_TARGET} \

Compile the package:


Install the package:

make install
