Sorry, I should have mentioned that on the wiki. The mscash infiles 
included in test suite 1.0.1 are not correct! They were produced without 
lowercasing the salt (and the format did not lowercase, like it should, 
until now). There will be an update to the test suite sooner or later, 
with enhancements and new formats (and this bug fixed - we were (half) 
joking about the need for a test suite for the test suite).

So your build is probably fine except for the mscash2 issue I posted 
about a couple of days ago: it doesn't handle salt length >8 properly.
