I checked the shadow file on a RH7.0 installation I administer and the
passwords do indeed start with $1$.

I'm fairly sure they would, but I haven't explicitly checked.

My version of libc is glibc-2.2-12.  It could be that eariler versions
don't support it and I honestly don't know how portable this behavior of
the crypt library is.  Also if someone installed the md5 library(ies) but
did not update the crypt library then they would have md5 support on
thier system but crypt would not be updated to work with it.
