The problem will be with your system getpass(), it probably limits
passwords to 8 characters.

The solution is to find out why REPLACE_GETPASS is not getting set in

1) check in config.h and see if it is getting set

2) if it isn't getting set then open config.log and
   look for "getpass" then see what compiler error you got
