No, it shouldn't. linux.cf (and all the other .cf files there) should
contain the details of how the currently installed X system was compiled.
We don't update the kernel version number listed there either, when we
install new kernels. I'll include shadow support (I've been sent a patch)
in the next xbase, but I don't expect to have a chance to work on it for a
week or so.
