On a production machine ? That's not good, since Debian already has PAM 
installed :

ouzo:/etc/pam.d# dpkg --list | grep pam
ii  libpam-krb5    1.0-12         PAM module for MIT Kerberos
ii  libpam-modules 0.76-22        Pluggable Authentication Modules for PAM
ii  libpam-runtime 0.76-22        Runtime support for the PAM library
ii  libpam0g       0.76-22        Pluggable Authentication Modules library
ii  libpam0g-dev   0.76-22        Development files for PAM

Make sure you have networking going, and issue :

apt-get install --reinstall libpam-modules libpam-runtime libpam0g
