On Debian, pam_unix.so in libpam-modules, which is going to be
installed on almost all Debian systems because things that use pam
(like login, passwd, and ssh as it happens) depend upon it.

pam_pwdb.so is in a separate package (libpam-pwdb), so is not
necessarily present, although it does seem to be maintained as part of
the main pam group of packages, so is not rotting like the SuSe

Cheers, Phil.
