Re: lib/48859 (getnetgrent(3) doesn't work with 3rd party NSS modules)

Synopsis: getnetgrent(3) doesn't work with 3rd party NSS modules

I had another look at the "nss_ldap" package:
1.) Its netgroup implementation is weird. It uses an internally declared
    structure as part of the API. I cannot figure out how this is
    supposed to work at all.
2.) The NetBSD (and the FreeBSD) shim layer for this NSS module (the sources
    of which are in "pkgsrc") simply doesn't support netgroups. And because
    of the weird API (see above) I'm not sure how to implement one.

So at the moment there is no third party NSS module with working netgroup
support that we could write our code against. I'm therefore closing this PR
until we find a suitable NSS module.
