I did something like:

Then in my libnss-ldap.conf I have:
base ou=People,dc=petersen-arne,dc=com
nss_base_passwd         ou=People,dc=petersen-arne,dc=com?sub
nss_base_shadow         ou=People,dc=petersen-arne,dc=com?sub
nss_base_group          ou=Group,dc=petersen-arne,dc=com?one

?sub being the operative key word.  I can authenticate against ou=people
and ou=*,ou=people.
