Checkpwd updated and also released for Mac

Alex has this week released a new version of checkpwd which has versions for Windows, Linux and now also the Mac. The MAc version is for ppc as that is the platform Oracle is available on. Checkpwd has versions that include a big password file, or not and also a version that simply says the password is weak without displaying the actual password that has been cracked. This version also goes back to the openssl code rather than the optimized intel code of the previous version.
