as already written, there are several Y2038 problems with glibc even on
some 64bit architectures

I wrote now "lastlog2" as Y2038 safe lastlog replacement.

All the informations can be found in my blog: https://www.thkukuk.de/blog/Y2038_glibc_lastlog_64bit/
and the code on github: https://github.com/thkukuk/lastlog2

In short: lastlog2 consist of a library, which provides a generic API
for this, a PAM module, so that no application needs to be touched, and
a lastlog2 application similar to 'lastlog' to display and maintain the
sqlite3 is used as backend, a robust, well maintained database.
