That's correct -- winbind does not yet work with NetBSD's nsswitch because
NetBSD doesn't support loadable nsswitch modules.  Only the PAM module
from the winbind package (in conjuction with a running samba and winbindd)
is usable, and allows authentication against an NT or Samba server using
the NT authentication RPC calls.
