how to install pam_ldap?

Is it possible that Slackware does not support pam_ldap?

I haven't found any package in repositories and I'm not able to compile it..

This is the error I obtain when I try to compile pam_ldap
pam_ldap.h:35:34: security/pam_modules.h: No such file or directory
ok.. then pam_ldap depends on PAM..
then I will download and compile PAM ('cause does not exist any package on repositories)
That's the error I obtain when I try to compile pam:
checking path to cracklib dictionary... configure: error: none found
Cracklib is a nice collection of library needed to verify that clueless users didn't choose too clueless passwords.
Then I will download and compile cracklib, but it seems to be a little more complex and I can't found a dictionary for the cracklib on the net.....

Something similiar was covered in another thread last week:

Basically, Pat doesn't like PAM, so there is no provision for it in Slackware.
