Description of problem:
It would be nice to include SUSE's pam_unix2 and libxcrypt into the Fedora distro in order to allow for easier transition from *BSD and also to allow for stronger password hashes.  The pam_unix2 plugin is backwards compatible with md5 and DES password hashes, so integration into a future version should not be too difficult.

The packages can be found in the current source distro of SUSE as well as here:
Make and install libxcrypt, then make and install pam_unix2.
Change all pam_unix.so occurrences in /etc/pam.d/* to read pam_unix2.so.

We have already support for SHA256 and SHA512 password hashes which are strong
enough and I do not see any serious reason for having pam_unix2 in Fedora. Also
new packages get into Fedora this way:
