Futher mail woes

I'm still having a problem getting qpopper (and now courier-{pop|imap}) to
authenticate using pam.  Both systems report a similar message in
/var/log/messages whenever a login is invoked.  As I mentioned, the error
happens for both the imap and pop pam.d/ entries.

service: in openpam_load_module(): no pam_unix.so found

I have hardcoded the path to pam_unix.so (/usr/lib/security/pam_unix.so), but
that doesn't work.  The permissions are as such:

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel    13B Feb 18 04:27 pam_unix.so -> pam_unix.so.1
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel   9.7K Feb 18 04:27 pam_unix.so.1

The machine was freshly (re)installed with the 1.4 release, and just updated to
1.4.1 last night.  Before the update, the permissions on pam_unix.so.1 were 777
and I still got the error.

What can I do to debug this further and hopefully correct it?
