Or copy /etc/passwd from the old machine to the new one, and run pwd_mkdb, which is essentially what vipw does anyway.

This would not work, the file that contains the passwords and that should be copied is /etc/master.passwd. pwd_mkdb generates the /etc/passwd from this file. /etc/passwd dows not contain the encrypted passwords.
