[Nano-devel] getpwent()

rcfile.c uses information from getpwent() to find the user's home dir,
according to the getpwent(3) man page this uses /etc/passwd

The systems here use NIS, so there is no /etc/passwd entry for my username so 
this fails meaning nano can't find my home dir to read my .nanorc file.
