Perhaps I can suggest a mechanism that allows it to be set as a server 
parameter. Something like:

set server auth_method = builtin
set server auth_method += munge

Obviously the munge mechanism will only work if it can load in the 
library or something similar. This would make it much cleaner so that 
multiple authentication mechanisms can be used as a single time, much 
like the way standard authentication systems work in Linux and NSS.
