Setting up pam_ldap & nss_ldap

On 5.3-Beta I have installed pam_ldap and nss_ldap.

Then I edited the following files:

files within /etc/pam.d
particularly /etc/pam.d/ldap and ./sshd and ./su

I think that's it.  I can provide each of those files if necessary. 
Nonetheless authentication for users not local to this system is not 
occurring (which would normally occur for me under Linux).  I have 
tried authenticating the following ways: 1) through ssh; 2) through su. 
  I have noticed, however, that the way I do this under Linux is not the 
same as for FreeBSD.  So, it's quite possible that I have left 
something out.  Anyhow, I would appreciate any input into what needs to 
be configured to get this to work.
