    app-admin/puppet-agent: symlink fix
    Both 7.9 and 7.10 installed a broken symlink to the
    library which cause the agent to fail. There may be some systems where
    the appropriate library still appears first in the system search path,
    however, on my system the glibc version is selected and it does not
    contain `XCRYPT_2.0` which ruby apparently requires.

    app-admin/puppet-agent: add subslot dep on libcrypt
    We need this to ensure that the symlink we set doesn't
    become stale during the libxcrypt migration (despite
    being a binary package...)
