Some care is required here; PAM modules and NSS modules are not really
"shared libraries", they're "dynamic shared objects" (DSOs).  On most
platforms, there are differences in the way the two types of objects are
linked, and it's feasible that they may also require different extensions
on platforms that care about such things.  However, $SHLIBEXT is probably
a pretty good first approximation.
