[Fwd] Uploaded pam 0.66-1 (source i386 all) to master

Just in case anyone missed this on the changes mail list, and so I
can explain some of the changes, what I have done and why.

First off, my goals were:

1) Upgrade to the latest version
2) Close as many bugs as possible (closed 10 or so that were lingering
   but already fixed, and actually closed ~22 with this release).
3) Start working towards making this actually usable in the base
4) Get a FAQ/HOWTO complete for developers to use in implementing
   pam in their packages (coming soon)

The upgrade to the latest version went fine, you will note that the
0.6x releases are pre. I'm hoping that this is released or atleast
rather stable by the time potato releases. Going through the bug
reports took most of the time, but I've cleared out all but 4 bugs
with this upload, and those I will have fixed by the next upload, I
want this setup tested well before then though.

The modules have been moved from /lib/security to /lib/security.0,
where '0' is the soname of the library. There is a script included with
the runtime package that allows preinst and prerm scripts to link
/lib/security with the proper /lib/security.? directory. This was only
because update-alternatives doesn't work on directories, but serves the
same purpose. This should not break anything of the packages that
depend on libpam (samba, and netatalk). I'de like those maintainers
feedback on how well it works.

I took the shadow package and did a test compile with libpam support
builtin to check out the setup. Everything works well (only passwd
really has pam support right now it seems), even md5 password support.
I then installed cracklib and the libpam0g-cracklib package and setup
passwd to use this as the primary password mechanism with pam_pwdb as
the secondary. This also worked well, with the exception of a small
glitch I will look into.

Couple of comments I would like help with:

1) Should pam_pwdb be the default in the base installation or are the
   pam_unix_*.so modules ok for this (pam_pwdb depends on libpwdb) ?
2) One of the bug reports claims that pam_lastlog.so should make a call
   to a wtmp function, a) is this really what it should do, if it is then
   b) where is a sample setup I can look at to implement this.

 pam (0.66-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New maintainer
   * New upstream release. closes: #16882, #30862, #7725
   * Created a better split of the main lib and the runtime to kill the
     circular dependencies and make it possible to have two .so version of
     the library installed for upgrades. closes: #10234, #10406, #12210,
     bug #14291, #15528, #15529, #20660, #25330, #29868, #31088, #31128,
     bug #9131, #9919.
   * Harcoded modules directory prefixed with the .so version, and
     used alternatives to create the symlink to the 'default' modules
     directory. libpam will use the full path when specified, but use the
     versioned modules directory for relative names.
   * Put libpam0g-cracklib modules back in (own package). This means that
     cracklib support is _not_ in the static libpam.a, also cracklib
     support is _not_ in pam_unix_passwd.o, but only in pam_cracklib.so
     by itself.
   * Fixed a few typos in the source causing compile errors
   * Fixed source #include's so that pam _didn't_ have to be installed
     in order to compile the source ( changed from <> to "" )
   * Removed empty directories from built packages
   * Opted not to build examples, only going to put *.c files in examples
     directory for libpam0g-dev
   * Moved *.sgml files for modules into their own directory (looks like
     that is what the original maintainer wanted to do, but it didn't go)
   * Moved doc build to arch-indep build in rules so that it doesn't get
     built when specifying -B with debuild/dpkg-buildpackage.
   * Moved `touch .quiet...' to build-stamp in order to have -B builds not
     ask about pam.conf
   * Split out non-standard modules to their own package, so as to make the
     base install smaller (planning for base inclusion here)
   * Created small manpage for pwdb_chkpwd. closes: #10941
   * The Copright file in /usr/doc/*/ was already named copright and not
     compressed. closes: #14533
   * Package is now lintian clean. closes #19383, #5132
   * There is a maintainer now and the patch for #25915 is still included
     so.... closes: #25915
   * Added check for editor backup files in /etc/pam.d (*~). closes: #28075
   * Applied patch for md5.h in pam_pwdb module. closes: #31548
   * Added support for dhelp in libpam-doc. closes: #31191
