-# Having this variable both defined and 'true' will cause busybox to directly
-# use the system's password and group functions.  Assuming you use GNU libc,
-# you will then need to install the /etc/nsswitch.conf configuration file and
-# the required /lib/libnss_* libraries. This generally makes your embedded
-# system quite a bit larger... If you leave this undefined, busybox will
-# directly use the /etc/password, /etc/group files (and your system will be
-# smaller, and I will get fewer emails asking about how glibc NSS works).
-# Setting USE_SYSTEM_PWD_GRP true adds just 1.4k to the binary size (which is a
-# _lot_ less then glibc NSS costs). Note that if you want hostname resolution
-# to work with glibc, you still need the libnss_* libraries.
