They don't seem to be compatible.

Whereas Nettle is fully compatible with glibc's rpc/des_crypt.h API, it
offers a completely different interface than encrypt(), which operates on
arrays of 64 bytes for each 64-bit block of input.

The ciphertext returned by encrypt() differs compared with Nettle and
des_crypt (and that's with the bit vector transformation from the man page).
