Yup, and with that bogus library terminated with extreme prejudice,
everything's building right off, no problem, and I have OpenLDAP

Unfortunately, what I wanted to do with it was single-sign-on, using
OpenLDAP as a single authentication source, and it's becoming apparent
that I can't do that without PAM.  This isn't a problem on my Solaris 9
boxen, but the Linux boxen are all Slackware, and Slackware does not
have PAM support.

So . . . does anyone here know of a way to do this on Linux solely with
NSS, without using PAM?  Alternately, has anyone here retrofitted
Slackware with PAM?

*sigh*  Those of us in the know have been referring to Red Hat as "the
Microsoft of open source" for some time now....  things like this are
part of the reason why.

I'll leave it at that, as further discussion would be off-topic.
