Description

Hi everybody,

I was installing LDAP on DragonFly and noticed that getent [1] is
missing. It is a very handy tool to see which password entries,
groups etc are available.

I copied over the tool from the FreeBSD source and changed only two
lines to make it compile. See attached diff. Maybe its worth to be
included into DragonFly?!?

Regards,

Matthias

Yes, that looks like an excellent program to bring into DragonFly.
I will bring it in right now.
