 See #19161 for background.

 When libscrypt requires libm, our current check fails to detect libscrypt.
 This caused a failure to build (#19161), which we fixed by not calling
 libscrypt_scrypt() unless that function was actually found.

 But we still have a problem here: We would like to detect libscrypt in
 these cases, and actually use it as appropriate.

 Isis and I wrote a solution in isis's branch `bug19161_028`, but it has
 some remaining infelicities, I think. Will transcribe those in a comment.
