Log Message:
	Historically, crypt() returned the empty string on error, which
	ensured that crypt("", "") would return "", which supported matcing
	empty encrypted passwords with no additional code.  Some modern
	versions of crypt() (such as glibc) return NULL on error so we need
	an explicit test to match an empty plaintext password and an empty
	encrypted password.
