Shadow passwords on Mac OS X (Panther)

I am running a cvs server with pserver on Mac OS X 10.3.4. The old password type on Mac OS X was crypt, which works fine for pserver authentication falling through to the system users. The new password types of Open Directory and Shadow are not recognised by cvs.

Is there an easy way to get cvs to recognise the newer password types through pserver? I have got as far as determining that there is no getspnam function available, and that /usr/include/gssapi has gssapi.h and gssapi_generic.h and gssapi_krb5.h. Is turning on gssapi support relevant? (I have not used gssapi before.)

(I know a work-around is to add pserver passwords for each user, and that is what I am using right now.)
