There is a significant difference between building Linux-PAM and
building a distribution around it. For one thing, Red Hat and the other
distributions include their own modules - pam_stack.so is one of them.
In my experience, it is generally fine to simply type make install from
the Linux-PAM build tree, and overwrite parts but not all of the Red Hat
PAM install. However, I don't mind killing my system once in a while -
You shouldn't think of more recent versions of PAM as being necessarily
better. Don't underestimate the effort and time the distributions spend
getting everything to work together, I am often behind with some modules
feature wise, but I hope the library parts are bleading edge.
