Subject:   password hash weaknesses in FreeBSD ?

The crypt program to hash passwords uses md5 /DES/blowfish for
password hashing as I have read in the handbook. DES and md5 are
widely regarded to be broken (certainly DES). I would prefer password
hashing to be done using salted SHA1 / SHA256 to meet my security
needs. Is this configuration possible?
