Yes acct_mgmt is not supported. I'm not sure it's relevant though as
typically RADIUS auth'd accounts are "virtual" ones in that they don't
otherwise exist on the system - hence the need to use RADIUS.
I'm currently using the FreeRadius pam_radius module to backend Apache
authentication (mod_auth_pam) in conjuction with pam_listfile reading a
list of IPs reflecting dialled in connections. This provides
authentication to the account management web interfaces for my ISPs
without requiring any user accounts on the appropriate web servers.
It works very well and those this requirement pam_permit does for the
account management function very nicely ;)
