It's not really an error, but it's very annoying.

Code:

$ su
Password:
configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'PASS_MIN_LEN' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'CHFN_AUTH' (notify administrator)


What is this and how do I stop it?

A google search for FAILLOG_ENAB reveals that you're dealing with entries from the /etc/login.defs file. Something is going on with login or the shadow suite. Yuck. I hope you haven't been hacked or something.

I would say it really is an error.

I definitely haven't been hacked. My network's firewall is extremely tight.

Try re-emerging pam-login and then doing etc-update or dispatch-conf, whichever you prefer to use after config files are changed. This should clear all or most of those errors. The one that may stick around after (it did for me) is 'PASS_MIN_LEN' -- I had to manually edit /etc/login.defs to get rid of it.
