What does Google-Authenticator provide for a desktop OS? I thought it
was just Android, Blackberry, and PAM.
Would this be a way to compile those components? Or is there desktop
support as well?

As a side note, this inspired me to look into Google's 2-factor auth
support and I came across oath-toolkit [1]. It includes a command line
tool for generating time- and HMAC-based one-time passwords. I can't
test it, as the 2-factor rollout isn't complete, but I think this tool
should integrate with Google's authentication as well.

It compiled cleanly on my Mac and I've submitted a Portfile [2].
