ldap.conf must be world readable for nss_ldap ?

Hi list,

I have a problem with nss_ldap.
nss_ldap requires /etc/ldap.conf to be world readable
but when it's world readable everyone can read the
binddn and the bindpw in it.

I need the bindpw to be only readable by the root user.
I tryed it with a ldap.conf with 600 permissions and
nscd running as root, but it did not work.

I know the list for this ist nssldap@padl.com but
this list is _very_ inactive so i decided to send
it to both nssldap an ldap-software.
