Do we support kerberos authentication for NIS lookup I wonder.

Several PAM modules uses libtirpc as fallback, but luckly for us,
it's only really needed for And this one uses it for
different tasks.

NIS doesn't use kerberos authentication, only plain RPC.

I couldn't find a place in where we call RPC functions
and are able to support IPv6, so I removed now the libtrpc dependency
to pam. But this is only possible as long as no module uses RPC with
IPv6. So this is not a long term solution, only short term.

Would it be possible to have a simple module in pam and more advanced
functionality in a different package - it can even be required by pam
as long as this is requirement does not apply in the build service
(bootstrap). I mean - long term ;)
