Yeah, it is there. I did get curious and checked the make file...

CONFIGURE_ARGS= --without-pam --with-gl --with-gle --with-xpm --with-xml \
		--with-hackdir=${PREFIX}/bin/xscreensaver-hacks/ \
                --with-configdir=${PREFIX}/share/xscreensaver/config/ \
		--with-jpeg=${LOCALBASE} --without-gnome --without-kerberos \
                --without-motif --mandir=${PREFIX}/man

It looks like that is the issue right there. Just removed --without-pam
and am seeing what happens now.
