Making apache .htaccess use unix passwords

I'd like to know is it possible to make Apache with .htaccess files to ask login name and use unix-password from password file in /etc, so I wouldn't have to write .htpasswd file at all.

I've readed some apache docs but there was only infromation regarding .htpasswd file.
