Add password/group call emulation.
This is a first pass at handling password/group calls, allowing the use of custom password/group files. In particular, when chroot()ed to a particular directory, pseudo picks files in that directory by default, to improve support for the typical use case where pseudo uses chroot() only to jump into a virtual target filesystem.
