I'd take a look at line 3 and the surrounding code of the
libpam06.postinst script and see if anything looks odd, like a
semi-colon in the wrong place, or if it's trying to overwrite a certain
file, I'd check the attributes on that file or maybe move it manually, etc.

Here are the contents of the file:

#!/bin/sh -e

case "$1" in

# Automatically added by dh_makeshlibs
if [ "$1" = "configure" ]; then
# End automatically added section

Line 3 is the case statement.  I don't have much practice with shell scripting, so I don't know if there's a problem.  Also, if I run "ldconfig" at the command line, it returns "Illegal instruction", so I don't know if the problem lies with the postinst file. 

Take care, eh.
