Simple test for modules with undefined symbols which don't link with libraries which provide them.
The bug is pretty straightforward: if you use dlopen() to open the library, and
you're not already linked to libpam, it fails because there are symbols in
libpam on which the module depends. If running this script against the module
fails while running it like so:
./dlopen.sh ./pam_krb5.so -lpam
succeeds, then you have the behavior described as in the report. The desired
behavior is for the script to succeed in both cases.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
