On the -ports list, somebody pointed out that the linux-base ports
include advice to to edit /compat/linux/etc/yp.conf (I'm using NIS).
I haven't tried this yet, but it makes sense that it would be
necessary.  For your case with LDAP, I suspect you would need to
configure nsswitch.conf, probably the same way as the FreeBSD version
in your real /etc directory.
