This is a PAM module which will create the $HOME for the user authenticated,
if it's not already there. It also copies over files from a skel directory
( default /usr/share/skel ) and can set the permission of the newly created
$HOME to a value of your choice
You may want to add something like this to your /etc/pam.d/login
or /etc/pam.d/sshd ( when you've configured ssh with PAM )
file to use this module:
session         required       /usr/local/lib/
