Thanks for jumping to Philippes' defense. Sometimes it is needed.

I apologise if I sounded harsh. No offense intended.

It would have helped had he just mentioned Linux. PAM is supported on all
the BSD family, on HPUX, AIX (in a way) and Sun Solaris. Just mentioning
PAM does not cut it so far as information needed goes.

In any case, Philippe, you need to install the devel packages.
I have no idea what the current dependencies are. Dependencies vary
considerably for SuSE and Red Hat Linux each time a new release comes out.
The simplest thing you can do is install all the development libraries.

PS: The dependencies for SuSE 8.1 and 8.2 are very different.
