HP/UX bigcrypt()

I am trying to get Samba working using encrypted passwords on a HP/UX 10.20
system which uses the /tcb/files/auth to store user information.  Along with
this strange location to store user information (including passwords), it
allows passwords over 8 characters using bigcrypt().  Is there any way to
have Samba support this?  I don't want to settle with truncating 10+ character
passwords down to 8 characters for Samba access.
