- pw_encrypt() system call

Linux devredhat2 2.6.9-42.0.3.
Can somebody tell me which library I can link my "C" code with that
will resolve the system call to pw_encrypt(). If this system call is
now obsolete, can you please suggest a replacement call that will do
something similiar,possible crypt()?
Thanks in advance to all that answer this post

I did a find from the root directory and only found one version of
libshadow.a and it was located in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libshadow.a
and this did not appear to resolve my symbol pw_encrypt. Do I need to
install some other package to get the right version of the library?
Secondly, what is the difference between pw_encrypt and crypt are they
inter-changable. That is can I replace the call to pw_encrypt with a
call to crypt and would everything work as is?
Thanks in advance for you help
