This is, I'm afraid, very system dependant. Sun has no /etc/pam.d, just
an /etc/pam.conf and also requires
(it seems) a full path to the module:

login auth required /usr/lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so.1

the ISA variable is to handle 32 and 64 bit variants. Linux has both
variants and other systems
probably have their own quirks. It seems like asking for trouble to try
and automate this. All
systems have a default "other" PAM configuration which cvs would use if
there was no specific
cvs configuration.

Hrm. Okay. I'm not _too_ worried about incompatible systems at the moment, though we could deal with that using configure, at least in theory. I may write one that works on my RH Linux before I commit this. We can let users with other requirements submit patches, perhaps.

Here is the updated texinfo file.

That looked good. You missed a few of the texinfo features we use, but I'll add the ones I don't miss before I commit this. :)

Speaking of committing, if I read the discussion correctly and noone changed their mind without saying so, we're still at +1 developer votes:

   Larry: +1
   Mark:  -1
   Me:    +1
   Total: +1

Any further objections to this going into experimental before I test it here and commit it?
