Actually, if we do this, I believe to preserve reproducibility, we need to touch
/bin/passwd - the original touch was added so the shadow script knew where it
was to be located - otherwise the build does not reproduce itself well (or at
least that's what I remember from the original PLFS discussions).  But, I like
this, and it would almost seem to be mandated by FHS - passwd *COULD* be very
important in some rescue situations, therefore it should be in /bin
