PAM for my Slackware


I'd like to set up virtual users for vsftpd, but I\m missing the whole PAM. Where could I find a package in tgz format, so I could install it with Slackwares package manager.
Somehow my c compiler cannot create executables :S therefore I can't run ./configure, that's why I'd like the package format.

Thanks in advance

I think the slackware package manager uses the same tools, it just does it automatically. So if ./configure doesn't work, a slackware package probably won't either.
