That's what I was thinking--not applicable to Linux client, should toss
an error or ignore it or something. I did it while logged in as root
using local mode to set my permissions.

Well, the config.log says it found PAM. Should there be a cvs file in
pam.d? (there isn't). SystemAuth was commented out, but I set it to
=yes just in case then committed it. Then I removed my user from passwd
(it was the only one in there) and then later remove the entire passwd
file. The login failed in both circumstances. Am I missing something?
