Installing correct libraries for PAM and readline

Some additional/alternative libraries needs to be installed to handle readline and PAM correctly.

The newer libreadline is GPLv3 and so not compatible with the MariaDB/MySQL GPLv2 license. The PAM libraries are needed for the PAM plugin.

On the Centos and RHEL -build VMs, install the pam-devel package:

    sudo yum install pam-devel

On all the Debian/Ubuntu -build virtual machines, install libpam0g-dev:

    sudo apt-get install libpam0g-dev

On debian6/maverick/natty, install libreadline5-dev (replacing any libreadline6-dev already there):

    sudo apt-get install libreadline5-dev

On oneiric (and any newer, eg. Debian 7 or Ubuntu 12.04), the package is called libreadline-gplv2-dev:

    sudo apt-get install libreadline-gplv2-dev
