I mentioned in my original message about pam_lastlog.so.  I pointed out
that I've set it as follows inside of /etc/pam.d/login, but I'm still
getting the "Last login: ..." line when I log in:

  session    optional   pam_lastlog.so silent

Apparently, this line is getting ignored, and something else is causing
that "Last login: ..." message to get printed.

But what ... ???
