I just noticed something while trying to apply some long overdue updates. A few versions ago, (2.6) the pam library began to have a dependency on libyubikey (./configure fails without it). Can anyone explain why this is? The README mentions libykclient depends on it, but that isn't true, as libyubikey (per it's description) decrypts and parses a OTP, but libykclient hands that task off to a validation server.

Does it have something to do with the challenge response functionality? If so, since I'm trying to compile --without-cr, is it possible to update the configure to drop the dependency in that case? I forced the issue a bit on my end just so i could get it compiled, and everything is still working fine in OTP mode, with no instance of libyubikey installed on the box.

Thanks, you are right. The libyubikey is currently only required for challenge-response.

I updated the README and configure.ac so it doesn't fail on libyubikey when --without-cr. This will be released with version 2.12 whenever that is released.
