Thanks for testing!

This warning is harmless, I don't know how to avoid it.  Linking this
way works fine on Debian.

address@hidden:~$ rgrep 28 /usr/include/security/
/usr/include/security/_pam_types.h:#define PAM_MODULE_UNKNOWN   28 /* module is 
not known */

The PAM root self-test modifies system-wide PAM configuration
temporarily (there is no other way to test a PAM module, people have
suggested patches to override the /etc/pam.d hard coded search path in
Linux-PAM but they were never accepted).

The code is here:

In your case, I suspect the self-test code couldn't modify the system
configuration, so it would fail with a unknown module error.

I'll improve reliability of the script and release a quick 1.6.1 so you
can test that.
