Actually, SuSE has crypt_blowfish (precisely the implementation that this news item talks about) integrated into glibc - and that's what pam_unix2 uses.
Yes, this has been around for a few years. crypt_blowfish 0.x has been around for over 5 years - but I declared it "mature" and released as 1.0 just recently.
As the crypt_blowfish homepage says:
"crypt_blowfish is fully integrated into Owl and distributions by ALT Linux team, as the default password hashing scheme. It is a part of the glibc package on ASPLinux and SuSE Linux.
Additionally, crypt_blowfish is used in the PHP Hardening-Patch, in PostgreSQL's contrib/pgcrypto providing bcrypt support for crypt() and gen_salt() SQL functions, and in CommuniGate Pro messaging server starting with version 4.1 ..."
