Somehow I myself dislike Debian...but I ain't gonna be the one who
started the flamewar..:-)

PAM...Redhat does, and Slackware 7.1 and below (that is what I run)[PS -
when did 7.2 come out?] do not.

You'd have to create two packages:

1) Slackware tgz --with-md5-passwords
2) Redhat 6.2 rpm (To produce this on a Slackware box, AFAIK, you would
need to install PAM, and configure --with-pam --with-md5-passwords)
