Garrick it is not that portable it is a LINUX_PAM extension.  I just tested
it on debian:
 - debian etch not available
 - debian lenny it is available

So it available on systems where LINUX_PAM is installed with the right

For now i will only incorporate it in my debian package so it will behave
like the other pam modules.
