Description of problem:
The man page and the info file (man points to this) does not mention
the use of PAM by the command 'su'. So it isn't obvious that you can
use /etc/pam.d/su to restrict access to this tool. Instead I was
tempted to mess around with the file permissions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man su | grep -i pam
2. info su | grep -i pam
Actual Results: (empty grep result)
Expected Results: Some lines mentioning that su is using PAM.
It is only one example. PAM HowTos don't replace updated documentation
if a system is using PAM.
Fixed package is 5.2.1-9.
