I think, the permissions of kcheckpass are OK:
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root bin 28924 Nov 8 2004 kcheckpass*

That's cool - that simplifies testing a lot...! :)
On my Solaris 10 box, the above line leads to a return value 2 (AuthError):
kcheckpass; echo $?
On a Solaris 9 machine, I get a return value 0.
I built kcheckpass/kdebase with these options for configure:
--with-shadow --with-rpcauth --with-pam=yes
When installing my KDEs under Solaris 10, I used the template
for /etc/pam.conf provided by Stefan Teleman
Here, I don't see any entry for kcheckpass. Is this OK?
/etc/rpc and /etc/services also contain entries just for dcopserver and dcop.
