I have been wondering about the latter.  Most direct users of the PAM
interfaces are either quite small or already threaded, I think.  This might
almost agitate for forcing the issue by moving the PAM interfaces to
libpthread, or to a separate library that depends explicitly on libpthread!

However, doesn't libc code also call into the PAM stuff?
