    Revert "libcrypt - install crypt.h header"
    This reverts commit b4ed82ece2b69f4a6711d35c5e42938dfc1d804c.
    BSDs have libcrypt and the prototypes for its functions are in
    <unistd.h>. The reason we had crypt.h installed for a while was
    to make KDE link against libcrypt, due to a wrong check in KDE.
    Unfortunately, at least one other package (chat/dircproxy)
    assumed that if <crypt.h> exists, it would also find prototypes
    for crypt() and friends there, which is not the case. So it
    would crash on x86_64 due to defaulting to int as crypt()'s
    return type (which is a pointer).
    The check in KDE has been fixed since and it properly checks
    for the presence of libcrypt:
    Hence this revert.
