Sorry, it wasn't actually working for me, it was doing nothing, because
I forgot to install the mkhomedir file for pam. I've attached a patch
that fixes it properly this time. Either pam-auth-update has really
changed, or the original author didn't read the man page. "pam-auth-
update" doesn't take any packages as arguments, unless you are removing
them. Specifying the '--package' argument just means that it won't
prompt for user input. It will override the common- files with whatever
the defaults are in /usr/share/pam-configs/. You can also specify the '
--remove' flag if you want to remove some of those default packages from
the overridden config.
