I don't think this is a good idea (what should having a world-writable
executable be good for?).
If you are using "files" as the naming service for the "passwd" database in
nsswitch.conf(4), "kcheckpass" (a) has to be installed setuid root in order
to be able to access /etc/shadow and (b) has to reside on a partition that is
mounted with the setuid flag (i.e. you must not specify a "nosuid" option
when mounting the partition where your KDE is installed on).
Hope this helps,
