shadow- is in testing.

I've updated the package to use a svn snapshot. The shadow version
( currently in the repo is just the version that was
released 2 years ago with a security fix. Using a more recent svn
snapshot will fix several issues like FS#21951.  Debian use the same
snapshot for their stable release plus the shadow package maintainer
for Debian is also the upstream developper. So it should be pretty
stable. :)

Other fixes I did:
- Removed the obsolete GETPASS_ASTERISKS option from /etc/login.defs
(close FS#19207)
- Fixed strncpy usage (close FS#23216)
- Updated license
- Added acl depends

Please test and signoff.
