Oh, huh, yes.  This raises an interesting question.  All PAM modules are
installed under /lib, because that's the path used by libpam to load them.
However, I don't think the vast majority of PAM modules could be
considered critical for early boot or need to be usable without /usr
mounted, and the thought of moving all libraries referred to by any PAM
module into /lib is daunting.

Should we just generally except them from this requirement?  Or do
something more subtle?
