I ran ldd on /lib/security/pam_env.so and didn't find any dependency on
it. Gdm does show a dependency on libpam.so. I think PAM doesn't know
about any of the programs that depend on it. Instead, modules are
written that other programs can access via libpam and libpam looks for a
config file in /etc/pam.d.
