+PAM Make Home Dir module
+This module will create a users home directory if it does not exist
+when the session begins. This allows users to be present in central
+database (such as nis, kerb or ldap) without using a distributed
+file system or pre-creating a large number of directories.
+Here is a sample /etc/pam.d/login file:
+ auth requisite
+ auth sufficient
+ auth required
+ auth optional
+ auth optional
+ account requisite

+ account required
+ session required skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0022
+ session required
+ session optional
+ password required
+Released under the GNU LGPL version 2 or later
