I am still getting this error on both -CURRENT machines I use and
these machines *are* fully re-built from source with all applications
re-built from an up-to-date ports tree.

To reproduce:

1) update your world, kernel and /etc to post new pam
2) rm /etc/pam.conf
3) reboot
4) build ports/security/sudo
5) configure sudo if you haven't already (/usr/local/sbin/visudo as root)
6) type "sudo ls" as your authourised sudo user
7) notice the following on your console:

Feb 14 12:05:47 blah sudo: PAM _pam_init_handlers: could not open /etc/pam.conf
