Ok. Actually, I saw this was a shared object, and I wondered this is the
first time  was seeing a SO which was executable. This confirms y
assumption :)

I already did knew about this PrintLastLog feature but I wasn't aware
this was PAM responsible of that (I thought this was sshd looking in
wtmp or lastlog manually).

Btw, do you know how to achieve the same behavior but on TTY or in GUI
opening a shell console (then added in the shell conf, like bashrc)? Do
you think we need to parse the output of the "last" command manually, or
do you have any other solution avoiding to reinvent the wheel?
