    why dont you just download the binary RPM tarball and convert it with rpm2tgz. it works great.

    and slackware doesn't use PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules), because pats not a great fan of it apparently

    hope this helps.

    TRy ./configure --help. There may be an option to remove PAM support from the compile.
