Well, I found that the /etc/pam.d/login config as incorrect.  I replaced
my old login.rpmsave in its place and all authentication works fine.

I guess one of the lines in the login config for pam must have been
incorrect = no authentication,  Funny thing though.... you never can tell
with upgrades....  cross your fingers.
