Another idea, what about just build ignoring the dependency of pam to
krb5? That breaks pam_unix but su as called by the build script skips
calling anyways due to use of for auth and
account. AFAICS pam_unix doesn't do anything useful in session either
(just syslogs the call). So it's 'required' flag in common-sessoin could
be changed to 'optional' without negative impact.
That way su when called by root would still work despite broken pam_unix

Ah, spoke too fast. That would still make pam require krb5 for building
ie keep it in the loop of course. So pam would need to be split up to
build the library and the modules separately. Looks doable as well as
the modules all live in a subdirectory that could be skipped when
