libc and pam_unix



Hi,

currently pam_unix uses libc functions to obtain the ..pw.. info for the
user. In trying to enforce NIS and non-NIS based password information, using
libc functions has the potential for confusing the unix module...
(/etc/nsswitch.conf altering the behavior of the clib functions)

If the sys-admin is to specify which database is to be used from pam.conf do
people think the module should use built in functions to read the password
etc. info from the right place? [ie. ignore the libc functions] 

Andrew
