/etc/pam.d/passwd is the configuration for the "passwd" program you use to
set new passwords.
The "password" line in the other configuration files chooses the pam-module
and the requirements,
i.e. "password required pam_unix2.so" means pam uses the unix2.so lib from
/lib/security and this check must not fail.
