OpenLDAP what? 

How is your FreeBSD host looking up user accounts and groups in OpenLDAP?
What's the bridge between nsswitch and OpenLDAP?

Are these tools/mechanisms bound to OpenLDAP or can be used with
any networked database and an appropriate schema? Probably I would find
Postres or MySQL more convenient as a networked database of user data, and
there are great free GUI and CLI tools for them.
