This stuff I made for our distro (see http://www.pld.org.pl). Linuxdoc
is a coincidence as we host their CVS :)

And this is the official PAM repository.

PAM from PLD may not work "out of the box" with RedHat. IIRC there are
some issues with the configs in /etc/pam.d that come with RH.

You will find skey rpms on ftp.pld.org.pl, they have all that is required
to compile pam_skey. And if you want there are also binary rpms with
pam_skey only (pam-pam_skey-*.rpm). Or you can just grab source rpm,
rebuild and see if it works ;)
