I think it's confirmed: I got patched tcb to work with no patches
applied for shadow (everything in /etc/tcb, no /etc/shadow). Logging in
works, su works, passwd works. adduser is broken (few others probably
too), so some kind of patch for shadow would be needed.

I'm attaching a small patch to add tcb support to ./configure. If tcb is
present and enabled, WITH_TCB will be #defined. Please review the patch,
and apply if you like it. If you'd rather see a bigger chunk of code,
that's possible too (I'd have some questions then though).
