Unable to login, pam_start(); system error

Hi

I recently installed samba on my FreeBSD through ports.
I remember setting something like this up, in a file..

auth        sufficient   pam_winbind.so
account     sufficient   pam_winbind.so
password    required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth

I dont remember what exactly the lines were and in what file.. i was following some samba guide..

I wanted to try the newest version so i uninstalled samba, and manually compiled the new version and installed..

When i started my computer this morning i was unable to login.
Error:
Freebsd login: in openpam_load_module(): no /usr/local/lib/pam_winbind.so found
Freebsd login: pam_start(): system error

I guess it has something to do with the pam libraries being removed and not installed with the new samba version, i compiled it with PAM support though, but it doesnt look like the libraries where places right, or missing symlinks or something..

My question is, is there any way to login ?
Or do i have to fix the auth file or libraries from another system ?

You can fix pam configuration using single user mode.
