This is fine, so long as the packages in question include pam.buildlink3.mk
and do *not* turn on the support if PAM_TYPE ends up as "none" (for OS's not
supporting one of the pkgsrc-supplied PAM packages).
On that note, I'll now add a special conditional to pam.buildlink3.mk to
prevent use of any pkgsrc pam packages on Interix, as that needs... a little
work, considering its auth system is very weird. :)
