Will try to help where I can, but I have not seen either of these 
issues....and I've built OOo2 over 20....maybe 25 times now, but all on 
the same devel system.  Still going...Trying to figure out how to use 
firefox/thunderbird libs and still get the TB address book (if 
Thunderbird is installed).

Would you mind posting both errors exactly as they are on the screen 
with some context?

Just for comparison:

[dj at name1 BOOK]# ls /etc/pam.d/
chage     gdm            groupdel  newusers  samba    userdel  xscreensaver
chpasswd  gdm-autologin  groupmod  other     su       usermod
cups      groupadd       login     passwd    useradd  xdm
[dj at name1 BOOK]# ls /lib/*
[dj at name1 BOOK]# ls /usr/src/sources/shadow-4.0.12.tar.bz2
