In nsswitch.conf, you need to have
passwd: files ldap
You can put ldap first but I saw scary stuff happening.
You also need to configure:
That file _must_ be readable by any user. You can have a different LDAP
account to bind to when the effective user ID is root, in that case, its
password will be looked up in:
/usr/pkg/etc/ldap.secret (mode 600)
Finally, you need to set a symlink:
/usr/lib/nss_ldap.so.0 -> /usr/pkg/lib/nss_ldap.so.1
