[Pkg-shadow-devel] Configuration error messages from login in shadow- with PAM enabled

Dear shadow maintainers,

I am compiling the shadow package shadow- with PAM support (configure
options --without-selinux --with-libpam) and running the login program. I
see the following messages on logging in :

SmartNA-HD login: admin
configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)

I believe this is due to a problem with the declaration of def_table[] in
lib/getdef.c lines 53-133. My suggested fix is to move the lines


to outside the section contained in 

#ifndef USE_PAM .. #endif
