no, it wasn't there the during initial install and the system works 
fine. anyway, found the cause of it, apparently during mergemaster, i 
either overlooked and didn't install pam.d/system or mergemaster didn't 
prompt for it. copied /usr/src/etc/pam.d/system to /etc/pam.d and the 
problem went away.
