It appears that there has been a request in place for pam-0.99 for
some time now. The response from developer knowledgable folks is at
the end of this bug report:

As for glibc, what is considered old and requires PAM to be patched?
Here's what is available on Gentoo:

mark@email-addr-hidden ~ $ eix -I glibc
* sys-libs/glibc
     Available versions: [P]2.2.5-r10 [P]2.3.2-r12
[P] [P] [P]
[P] [P] [P] 2.3.5
2.3.5-r1 2.3.5-r2 ~2.3.5-r3 *2.3.6 *2.3.6-r1 ~2.3.6-r2 ~2.3.6-r3
~2.4-r1 *2.4-r2
     Installed: 2.3.5-r2
     Description: GNU libc6 (also called glibc2) C library


P.S. - Yeah - If a binary only distro actually worked for the 50 extra
things I need to run then I'd consider it but I've been down that path
with Fedora and am quite hesitant to go there again. ;-) - MWK
