I've tried both nss_ldap and nss-pam-ldapd and I prefer the latter -- it
is build around a pretty nice 'nslcd' caching daemon and seems to run
more smoothly in general than nss_ldap.  Plus only one config file to
hookup both pam and nsswitch to LDAP, and it understands LDAP service
autodiscovery via SRV records.
