This has some bad RPM interactions, unfortunately. You end up with a bunch
of files which RPM doesn't own and doesn't know what to do with. 

For non RPM systems, the conversion program is a better solution then
falling back on /etc/pam.conf. For systems which are running Red Hat 4.0/4.1
that isn't a good solution, unfortunately.

That sounds like a good solution.
