pam-krb5 2.3

With Quanah's help, pam-krb5 has been ported to Solaris (Solaris 8 at least). I had to add a flag saying not to delete tickets when the session closes, though, since Solaris closes the session before running the user's shell (bizarre).

I'd been hanging on to those changes for a bit to see if I had time to do anything else, and then got a bug report that the prompting function in the module didn't properly handle multiple prompts due to an incompatibility between the Linux and Solaris PAM interfaces. That's now fixed (and I also figured out how to enable the feature of retrying authentication against the master KDC in krb5.conf, which will be useful).

You can get the latest release from the pam-krb5 distribution page.
