4 I know why it's there.. is also stated clearly on ebuild and the changelog :)

9 Well.. seeing how other things are getting done with plugins, as pam modules
10 are just plugins, for example xmms, bmp or gstreamer, the current trend is to
11 split the ebuilds, instead of adding a lot of useflags.
13 Also, counting that pam_console and the other optional pam_* modules aren't
14 part of original Linux-PAM makes me prefer having a different ebuild for them
15 instead of a single largest one.
17 Well, that's obviously IMHO. Having a virtual/pam and
18 virtual/pam-base-modules is enough to make the openpam interoperability i'd
19 like to have.
21 And just to make it clear, it's on Linux that I can't build pam_console, I
22 haven't tried on fbsd, anyway.
