+ help
+ Set the initial root password (in clear). It will be md5-encrypted.
+
+ If set to empty (the default), then no root password will be set,
+ and root will need no password to log in.
+
+ WARNING! WARNING!
+ Although pretty strong, MD5 is now an old hash function, and
+ suffers from some weaknesses, which makes it susceptible to attacks.
+ It is showing its age, so this root password should not be trusted
+ to properly secure any product that can be shipped to the wide,
+ hostile world.
+
+ WARNING! WARNING!
+ The password appears in clear in the .config file, and may appear
+ in the build log! Avoid using a valuable password if either the
+ .config file or the build log may be distributed!
