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.

It would seem to me that pam_unix should perhaps move to pam-modules,
so that the pam core does not depend on anything extra that
mere plugins would pull in.

At fist: I don't understand why you include the people from a
mailing list into To, too...

Second, this would mean you need to add pam-modules to the base packages,
which wouldn't solve that problem at all, but makes it worse.

Third, this will not solve the RPC/IPv6 issue, if, in the end,
you move everything from pam to pam-modules.
