 Replying to [comment:3 swills]:

 the pwd_mkdb(8) man page:

 Yep, I expect it was just tested with a Linux shadow setup and the letter
 "x".

 be fine. I can try to take a look at that if it would help.

 Sure, thanks.  The trouble we'll have is that it can't be autoloaded with
 Augeas as we already have one for /etc/exports.  It might be worth
 including upstream though and then perhaps the FreeBSD package/port can be
 patched to autoload the FreeBSD exports lens over the "standard" (Linux)
 exports lens?

 nsswitch.conf, so perhaps it should just be skipped?

 Again, probably better as a patch downstream in FreeBSD.

 /etc/rc.conf"), it can contain any valid shell syntax, so making things
 100% for it may be difficult.

 Ok, that's good - we have a lens for shell files (e.g.
 /etc/{sysconfig,default} on Linux) so we can add /etc/rc.conf to its incl
 list.  If the rcconf.aug lens is used downstream, it'll need to be removed
 for the next release so there aren't two lenses autoloading the same file.
