Yep, I think that it would be perfect to mention libc somewhere,
because `crypt()` is really loaded with possible interpretations.

Maybe something like "the crypt() function from libc", "system crypt()
function" or "native crypt() function" will be a bit more explicit.
Probably, system-specific examples are not useful in this case.
