This should be a bug - please file it as such in launchpad. It may not be a very high priority one, as I thought PAM only worked on Linux, but apparently it also does work on OSX. In fact, pgsql+PAM also seems to work on OSX -- http://www.afp548.com/article.php?story=20060727093739762

I guess for homebrew, the best thing to do is disable it in the meantime. I'm curious to know how many people use PAM auth on OSX... and how it pans out with OSX Server
