Thanks for the update. I'm in the process of merging the changes. I'm
first working on updating the code to match the current SVN version
(some structural changes were already made to improve portability).

I've trimmed down ldap-nss.h to the things we actually use from it and
have cleaned out some more files. Also, I want to see if I can make the
changes easier to read. Perhaps work it a little toward the solution
that FreeBSD uses [1].

Since the _nss_ldap_*_r() functions aren't exported by that name anyway
perhaps it isn't needed to rename them to _nss_nslcd_*_r()? Another
solution would be to rework the NSS_BY* and NSS_{SET,GET,END}ENT marcos
so they can be easily fitted inside the functions with just the 
  nss_status_t _nss_ldap_*_r(nss_backend_t *be,void *args)

Having something like:
could perhaps also work. I would rather have some of those flavour
blocks at the end of each nss file than those ifdefs scattered
throughout the module.

Anyway, attached is a patch against SVN r1227 of the merging work I've
done so far. Please let me know if I terribly broke anything already. It
currently doesn't correctly compile on Linux though (I think the linker
is called with incorrect options).

I'm going to continue with cleaning things up (I want to get rid of
ldap-nss.h altogether) and perhaps working it towards the clearer
separation of libc-specific hooks.

Perhaps I should create a branch in SVN with this code. I can provide
you with commit access if you like so perhaps we can work on it together
if you like. What do you think?
