Strange... I just noticed how you fixed the problem at first, are you
sure that everything was compiled with the same libraries? Also, can
you verify that ldap_nss was compiled with the "--enable-rfc2307bis"
flag? Something isn't adding up. I fear I've missed something here.

I was taking the missing nss directory to mean that you didn't have the
correct nss modules installed, but I think you've just stumped me. Does
anyone more qualified than myself have a feeling one way or the other on
this? The fact that the library wasn't symlinked disturbs me a bit.
Could this be conflicting libraries from different compiles?
