Try to get rid of applications that want to do getpwent() or getgrent()
calls. They are rather expensive with LDAP, won't work if size limit is
set, and with a large number of users using get*ent() is a stupid idea
anyway. gethostent() died when the DNS took over HOSTS.TXT; getpwent()
and getgrent() should die when LDAP takes over /etc/{passwd,group}.
