  In pre-compilation time (configuration) there is option:

  If you don't have that defined, and have   <security/pam_appl.h>
  header file, then your system is compiled with PAM support.
  Oh.. and is linked with "-lpam" library while making smtpserver.

  After that, this file (that you found about) is needed in the system:

       ------- /etc/pam.d/smtpauth-login -----------

       auth     required  /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow
       auth     required  /lib/security/pam_nologin.so
       account  required  /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so

  (Just those four lines, not the preceeding filename line)

  However this file recipe is positively known to work only
  at Linux (RedHat's at least), and Solaris.  I recall that
  HP-UX and perhaps AIX might also have PAM support.
  Are there possibly some different paths needed in
  that case, that I don't know...

  You didn't mention your system environment.
