Randy, maybe we should make this a little more robust so the .so
versions aren't hardcoded (although, they're probably entities in the
book source). I've been using a loop with readlink in my script. I
think the following would work.

mv -v /usr/lib/libpam*.so.0* /lib &&
for lib in libpam{,c,misc}.so; do
    link=`readlink /usr/lib/$lib` &&
    ln -v -sf ../../lib/$link /usr/lib/$lib
