Anyone using any sort of nss_X.so module? Are there any open issues with 
FreeBSD/amd64 and nssswitch? I've been reading a good deal of archived mailing 
list messages regarding development/threading issues, but to no avail have I 
found any definitive answer as to if nssswitch works correctly and completely 
under FreeBSD.

Personal interest being drawn from my own issues using, configuring, and 
updating/compiling nss_ldap. Issues in the code, issues with making new 
versions, and apparently just issues all-together :( Thinking perhaps someone 
else out there is using without problem some sort of nss solution?

Sparing one problem, current version from FreeBSD/ports/current seems to work 
correctly, but problem is quite an issue and potential security risk - the likes 
of which I am still unsure of. I have posted a few times to various mailing 
lists, and am a member of freebsd-questions, freebsd-current, freebsd-hackers, 
freebsd-amd64, and nssldap/padl.com - all to no resolution thus far. I'd ideally 
just like to do the wrench-work and get new(er) version of nss_ldap to 
compile/function properly under FreeBSD.
