Yes, I think it will happen sooner or later.

I think Slackware may include a fully functional PAM in the next
release after 13.37(may be 14 or 14.xx?). As time goes by, PAM is more
and more mature and is not the one years ago. Lots of distro have PAM
and it is well tested in some degree. If we have PAM, building KDE
might be easier too.
