PAM module to automatically mount encfs filesystems on login

This PAM module integrates encfs and PAM, so home directories are automatically mounted on login. EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space, this PAM module easily allow each user to have an encrypted home, and mount it automatically using its login password as encfs password.
Package version:


To use libpam-encfs on Debian you need to modify /etc/pam.d/common-auth and add
pam_encfs to it. Under a normal setup, if you don't use more special pam modules
just add *before*, it should be something like: 

auth 	sufficient
auth	required nullok_secure use_first_pass

session        required
(note that setting "encfs_default --idl

  * Link using gcc instead calling ld directly. Hopefuly closes ubuntu bug
    number 205783.
