I guess what I am asking, can I take the shadow hint sed and use it instead of
the book's sed leaving the rest of the book instructions identical?

(lfs-book cvs)
sed 's%/var/spool/mail%/var/mail%' login.defs.linux > /etc/login.defs &&

(shadow hint)
sed 's%/var/spool/mail%/var/mail%
s%^#MD5_CRYPT_ENAB.*no%MD5_CRYPT_ENAB yes%' login.defs.linux \
   > /etc/login.defs &&
