So what Chris, we should modify the Shadow instructions to include
some instructions on how to compile if Linux-PAM is not installed?

What is the point in that? Those instructions would then belong in
the CrackLib instructions.

Please, Chris, at least provide at least *one* reason why you think
that CrackLib should not be included in the default LFS build. Let's
work on that more than what BLFS should do.
