Well other than weakly noting that the build logs seem to suggest PAM  
is currently pulling in Cracklib; and that some googling suggest that  
Cracklib is only an optional component of PAM; I might go as far as  
removing Crack lib from my B4 XO and see if it fries anything else in  
an obvious way (and post the results here).
