BTW it's relevant at least for Owl GNU/*/Linux by default too.

Or you might want to follow best practices (that is, reusing
configuration in this case) and include system-auth on other
distros instead of relying on particular scheme in your snippet:
there are other auth modules (someone would use e.g. pam_ldap).

PS: I've checked nearby VPSes with Mandriva 2007.1, FC6,
CentOS 4.4 -- all of them do provide /etc/pam.d/system-auth.
Only Debian Etch would diverge calling that "common-auth".
