Yes, i vote for this one! Since you provide a patch, i just want to say
that if the `getent' command finally reach the FreeBSD tree, my old PR
bin/79903 requesting this particular inclusion (but without a patch) may
be closed too. FYI, the proposed modifications seems ok on both RELENG_6
and -CURRENT machines (tested in a local environment). Thank you very
 i.e. without a NIS or LDAP respositories. Can do the test tomorrow
though, if someone is interested.
