Thanks.  I installed that, with two further changes.  First,
getpass.c should include getpass.h (to test the interface), and
it should include it first (to catch unwanted dependencies on
other headers).  Second, this line:

extern char *getpass (const char *prompt)

was missing a semicolon, so I added it.  I took the liberty of
removing the "extern" since I prefer omitting obvious redundancies (if
this bugs you please let me know and I'll put it back in).

coreutils currently uses getpass.c but I think we'll phase that out,
as the only program that uses it is su.c, and we're thinking of
removing su.c (nobody uses coreutils su any more, right?).
