How 'bout PAM? /usr/ports/security/pam_ldap. If you have machines that
can't do PAM, perhaps NIS is the way to go (assuming, of course, you're
behind a firewall). You can store login information in LDAP like you want,
then use a home-grown script to extract the information to a NIS map. Or,
if you have a Solaris 8 machine lying around, you can cut out the middle
step and use Sun's NIS server which can backend directly into LDAP.
