I think Fedora calls it pam-devel.

Yea. I should probably some day change it so that if --enable- 
something is given and something can't be used because of some  
missing libraries or whatever, it should give an error instead of  
silently disabling it.

You can check from config.log what it says about PAM. It most likely  
isn't finding the needed header files.
