Description: Custom password prompt (i.e. "-p" option) fails on sudo version 1.9.8-1. This option works after reverting back to previous version, 1.9.7.p2-1

Steps to reproduce: run sudo with custom prompt option, for example:
sudo -p "blah" ls

Command returns this error:
sudo: (null): option "passprompt_override" does not take a value
sudo: error initializing audit plugin sudoers_audit

This task depends upon

Looks like it's already been addressed upstream:

Yup. Tried the patch, and the bug is gone.
