Sorry to say, but FreeBSD 4.9 doesn't support LDAP the way you want. You
can authenticate users with pam_ldap for other purposes, but not for a
shell login. 4.9 still lacks nss support which is essential.
5.2-RELEASE which is completely dynamically linked is the first release
with full ldap login support.
