PATH isn't used for shared libs (/lib will be getting searched, or the
machine probably wouldn't boot). There's a separate search path set for
the dynamic linker to load shared libraries, but it's platform specific.
(On a leenux you need to add the directory
to /etc/ld.so.conf - or you did last time i used it (circa redhat 5.2 ))
Or you could try setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib/security (that's a horrible
hack, but it should work).
If I was you I'd just add a --with-pam to your ./configure command line,
and check config.log after that completes.
To check this is your problem, try ldd - it
tells you what shared libs a binary is linked against (and uses the
search path I mentioned earlier).
Mine shows (freebsd 5.3):

Bye then (I know jack about ident)!
