Basically APT can't handle the dependency problem that develops here.

Look in /var/cache/apt/archives. You should have libpam0g and
libpam-modules in there. Here is the exact commands I used:

cd /var/cache/apt/archives
dpkg -i libpam0g_0.76-12_i386.deb libpam-modules_0.76-12_i386.deb

Then I could dist-upgrade to my hearts content. If it complains about some other lib files, then you may have to install them also.
