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
