It's the OpenSSL package you're missing.  The crypt package is only
supporting DES password and is mainly for 9x users to create a password
for /etc/passwd.

/lib contains only link libs needed for linking against the corresponding
dlls.  /lib/foo.dll.a is the link lib against /bin/foo.dll, basically.
There are no DLLs in /lib, except for applications which explicitely load
them from there.

The owner must be the same who starts the sshd parent process.  That's
SYSTEM on NT/2K/XP boxes (as it's "root" on Unices).
