Re: Circle 2.2 on FreeBSD 2.1

FreeBSD indeed has problems with crypt library - either you need to use 
DES encryption (which use is limited for USA only) or to compile the MUD 
without encrypting the passwords. Jeremy has added a NOCRYPT compilation 
flag to the main MUD server code, but didn't do that for the utilities. 
All you have to do is to replace the following in util/mudpasswd.c :

crypt(password, something)



Hope that helps.
