Hm. I never used FreeBSD with LDAP backed up environment.
Some linux apps display warnings about unknown IDs (something like
glib about UID 0), but it never prevented the app from functioning.

I don't think so. The main idea for linuxulator is to use as much as
possible. We do use FreeBSD native configure and other files and
databases. E.g. we _remove_ passwd and other files (as well as some
directories) from linux distribution before installing.

Well, I can give you only some theory here. Sorry. :-(
1. Use FreeBSD database (passwd and friends) before LDAP.
2. Add needed IDs to LDAP database.
