pam-krb5.sf.net. This is an enhanced version of RedHat's pam_krb5.
I will release rc8 in this weekend, it will contains many workarounds
for the solaris pam implementation, so I recommend it.

Why dont use unix groups for authorization? There are few pam module now
which implement authorization based on unix groups.
