Comment:

 OK, I can do that.  However, I might throw a few comments here.  When I
 built shadow with pam but without cracklib following the books
 instructions, it didn't work correctly for all the "If you don't have
 cracklib, do this."  Particularly, this section:

 {{{
 for FUNCTION in OBSCURE_CHECKS_ENAB CRACKLIB_DICTPATH \
                 PASS_CHANGE_TRIES PASS_ALWAYS_WARN
 do
     sed -i "s/^$FUNCTION/# &/" /etc/login.defs
 done
 }}}

 I had to have those defined or there were a lot of complaints at login.
 This was quite a while back, so I thought I'd made a mistake and moved on.

 Anyway, I'll be building it again with PAM but without Cracklib in the
 next couple days, so I'll try to see what the issue is.  I might steal a
 couple things from Paldo that look promising:
