PAM completeness and standardization

FreeBSD has excellent PAM-support, except for the passwd-command. The  
passwd-command gained PAM support quite a while ago, but there is a  
test preventing it from working with PAM.
There have been outstanding PR's for this minor issue for years now, I  
think it's time this one got fixed. People find it frustrating that  
they can't change their passwords (LDAP etc), like they can in a  
normal PAM-based system.

I'd be happy to fix whatever needs to be done, but I need to know why  
it's not been fixed / what needs to be done for it to be accepted by  
the community.
