In Linux-PAM, libpam_misc schould be linked against libpam. That is
a minor Linux-PAM bug which has no real effect in practice, because
everybody using libpam_misc also uses libpam.

But the shadow maintainer is also wrong. The configure script is to
detect special things like such bugs. He should apply the patch to
his configure script as correct workaround.
