I'm a little bit confused by your question.  But I suspect you may be
confusing "libcrypto" with "libcrypt".  libcrypto is one of two
libraries (libssl being the other) which is part of the OpenSSL
product.  libcrypt on the other hand is a standard part of most Unix
distributions which handles Unix's password encryption.  The two
definitely are not compatible.

Refer to the OpenSSL site for more information about libcrypto,
