It's only needed in Pinstripe and newer Raw Hide releases.  It's the
control file which other services use for password-checking functions.
It saves us the trouble of making authconfig aware of and able to parse
and correctly edit every single PAM configuration file.  If you're on
6.2 or earlier, you don't need it (but authconfig shouldn't know how to
generate it, either).
