On NetBSD, you can use the getent(1) command to perform lookups
in the various databases that are switched through nsswitch.conf.
This should help in testing your nsswitch.conf and /lib/nss_FOO.so
For example, does 'getent passwd' dump your entire /etc/passwd and
winbind maps if you're using ``passwd: files winbind'' ?
As I mentioned previously, I haven't used this in a while.
When I did the development a few years ago, I had it working
for nsswitch lookups for uid/gid (but not PAM authentication).
