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):
