I can't help much with getting that particular pam auth module to work, but I
can suggest an alternative which might give you better results, or at least
better error logs (I hope...)


php_pam fully implements the PAM API, and should work with a much wider range
of PAM modules than Chad Cunningham's pam_auth module.  Of course, since I'm
the author of php_pam you may wish to take my biased recommendations with a
grain of salt. :)
