RE: nss_ldap feature broken by changes in tls.c (ITS#1555)

Unfortunately the man pages are extremely out of date in this area, so
for now the source code must serve as the documentation. That's probably
not the answer you wanted to hear, but that's how things stand today.
The best examples for how to use the libraries are probably in clients/tools,
e.g., ldapsearch.c.
