The build process of pam from abs ends with error:

Additional info:

Related to glibc 2.16. There's now a missing include for <sys/resources.h> in modules/pam_unix/pam_unix_auth.c

There's an additional build failure for this package in pam_unix2 that I'm not willing to fix, but dropping the module may not be an immediately available option.

Patch for issue added to trunk,
problem for pam_unix2 still not fixed and I don't know how to fix.

Found a patch here, don't know if this helps

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see why wouldn't it be possible to drop support for pam_unix2. I checked my system: by default, it is not used.

FYI for my source-based Arch I removed pam_unix2 and my system has been ok (obviously I don't try to use blowfish passwords). The build and package functions for pam-1.1.5:
build() {
cd $srcdir/Linux-PAM-$pkgver
patch -Np1 -i "${srcdir}/Linux-PAM-1.1.5+glibc-2.16.patch"
./configure --libdir=/usr/lib

package() {
cd $srcdir/Linux-PAM-$pkgver
make DESTDIR=$pkgdir install
The patch is here:
