I'd be interested in seeing the output, although I bet most of the
stuff it produces is spurious.

for example, the WEXITSTATUS problem you mentioned isn't really a
problem. It is used without an ifdef in chpasswd.c which only gets
compiled on a limited range of systems due to its dependence on lots
of fancy tty handling stuff. I doubt a system without WEXITSTATUS
would have the other things necessary for our autoconf system to
decide that chgpsswd.c should be included.
