I tried upgrading to 2.5.8 from 2.5.7 yesterday and ran into a problem with pam_pbssimpleauth:

Oct  4 15:05:25 c23 sshd[16909]: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib64/security/pam_pbssimpleauth.so)
Oct  4 15:05:25 c23 sshd[16909]: PAM [error: /lib64/security/pam_pbssimpleauth.so: undefined symbol: getpwnam_ext]
Oct  4 15:05:25 c23 sshd[16909]: PAM adding faulty module: /lib64/security/pam_pbssimpleauth.so

I built 2.5.8 the same way I built 2.5.7:

./configure --host=x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu --build=x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu --target=x86_64-redhat-linux --program-prefix= --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share --includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib64 --libexecdir=/usr/libexec --localstatedir=/var --sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --disable-gcc-warnings --with-pam=/lib64/security --enable-cpuset --enable-geometry-requests --enable-blcr --enable-nvidia-gpus

Rolling back to 2.5.7 fixed the problem.
