It sure is, actually... lots of people get this problem after upgrading to
2.2.2.  The solution is to make sure that you have a login.conf file in
your /etc directory.  If you downloaded the latest sources from the FTP
site and did a "make world", or even if you installed a brand new
installation, the file *should* be under /usr/src/etc/login.conf.  If you
don't have it, let me know and I'll send you mine (I haven't changed it
from the defaults).
