These are FreeBSD instructions; I can see that both from the command
requested (pwd_mkdb) and the URL (tobez is one of the FreeBSD developers).

You should probably be able to just drop that step; Linux use (d to use?)
/etc/shadow instead of /etc/master.passwd, and did not use database files
(which FreeBSD use for acceleration, but which also makes the password handling
more complex.)
