As Sam mentioned, why not use the SEAM pam_krb5 for your authentication and
write your custom authorization stuff part of the account module?

There have been alot of improvements in the SEAM pam_krb5 module
in the past year or so - most of which are avaialable by default in
s9 and some of which are available in Solaris 8 patches.
