I am migrating from 7.2 -> 7.4. I can't figure out how to move the

Remove secondary password file capability and pg_password utility
If I remember correctly, you can't. We now perfer MD5, where we can
store the information encrypted in the database, and use random salt
over the wire.
We cant unencrypt the crypt values so unfortunately you have to reenter
them. You can do it using ALTER USER now.
