Basically APT can't handle the dependency problem that develops here.
Basically look in /var/cache/apt/archives. You should have libpam0g and
libpam-modules in there. Here is the exact commands I used:
dpkg -i libpam0g_0.76-12_i386.deb libpam-modules_0.76-12_i386.deb
Then I could dist-upgrade to my hearts content. I am sure this problem
will go away eventually, but for the immediate future here you are.
