RFC: passdb redesign

In passdb 2.0.6, the library has one global variable that is being exported.
It's name starts with "global_machine_password_needs_c"

One request would be to remove all public global variable and replace them
with either of:

A function that returns a pointer to the global variable


A function that returns the value of the global variable with if needed, a
second function that can set the value of the global variable.

It makes it much easier for me to build passdb as a shared image, or to
build a VMS specific version.
