Well, we have PAM in Debian GNU/Hurd ;)
The main problem with GNU/Hurd and ssh(and clones) is that, by default,
we don't have /dev/random nor /dev/urandom (there is a random
translator which is working, but not included in Debian GNU/Hurd).

And anyway, there is the arch-specific builddeps and depends that can be 
used for that.
