Description of problem:
This problem is actually present in all versions of Red Hat Linux back
at least to Red Hat 7.2.
The authconfig page contains incorrect and incomplete information on the command
line options involved. I have a patch which at least gets everything right in
the summary plus fixes some errors in the main part of the page. However, the
page could be improved even further (it currently doesn't describe all of the
command line options, and those that are described aren't always fully
explained). It also still seems to provide some incorrect information. For
example, --probe is suggested as a way of printing out the current configuration
output, yet it prints nothing for me (authconfig --test --kickstart appears to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man authconfig
2. Compare against popt option code in authconfig.c
3. Be amazed at the differences and omissions ;-)

Patch that fixes at least some of the problems.
The attached patch fixes the SYNOPSIS section completely, however there are
more problems that could be addressed, see the initial bug report.
I've improved the man page a little bit. It should appear in the next
