You guessed right.... 2.2.13 works with no problem.

My LFS system is behind a firewall so I am not terribly concerned
with shadowing... I haven't done this yet but I think I need to
remove/replace the apps created by shadow with the apps created by
util-linux. First you have to edit the MCONFIG file before compiling
util-linux. I think the following have to be changed:


I'll verify these tonight and post it here... I also don't think that
the shadow package needs to be installed if the above options are
set...again, I'll post the results tonight...

If anyone knows how to get shadowing working with development
kernels....post it please!
