From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701

Description of problem:
The /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so module is not linked against libnsl.so.1,
which causes it to complain about a missing symbol yp_master (shows up
in /var/log/messages).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change /etc/pam.d/system-auth and replace all occurrences of pam_unix with
2. Attempt to use a login-based service (su suffices)

Actual Results:  Message is logged to /var/log/messages saying that the dlopen
of pam_pwdb failed due to missing symbol yp_master.

Expected Results:  The dlopen should have succeeded.
