What's the status of libpam0g? I run testing:
$ dpkg -l libpam0g
ii libpam0g 0.76-9 Pluggable Authentication Modules library
Perhaps you need to reconfigure the package:
# dpkg-reconfigure libpam0g
... then [I]nstall again via dselect.

If dselect wants to remove libpam0g, perhaps there's a conflicting
dependency. If you're having trouble with dselect pinning down the
conflict, you could use apt instead, which I find friendlier.
To update the available packages:
# apt-get update
To simulate the upgrade, just to see what would happen:
# apt-get -s upgrade
If the result is satisfactory, upgrade:
# apt-get upgrade
You could also try aptitude as a package manager.
