Authconfig is developed currently by me. It is not related to the PAM
project in any other way than that I am also a PAM developer currently.

authconfig has some manual pages. See man system-auth-ac if you want to
keep some adjustments to PAM configuration. Also the current authconfig
in Fedora 9 doesn't overwrite all files every time. It will overwrite
only files which are affected by the changes in the configuration.
