Damn. I've rebuilt the pam tests for ia64 and uploaded.
The information here is not actually part of the test suite,
but is generated by rpm at build time (that is, run_tests is
a file generated at packaging time). The architecture check
in the rpm specfile was too precise, so it worked fine for
Chris on a Debian system, but ended up wrong when I built on
a Red Hat system. I redid the runtime test when I ran into
this, but didn't realize I also needed to do it for pam.
This won't change anything about how the test works otherwise,
so no real point in rerunning.
