Ok, /usr/lib/security needs to exists, but for /etc/pam.d we really need
to add same sane default configuration compiled in if /etc/pam.d doesn't
exists at all or it is empty (maybe also if the requested file is missing).

We will have more an more reports coming in after 3.0 is out if that isn't
fixed before.
