Log Message:
security/winbind - unified logon information between UNIX and Windows NT

Winbind uses a UNIX implementation of Microsoft RPC calls, Pluggable
Authentication Modules, and the Name Service Switch to allow Windows NT
domain users to appear and operate as UNIX users on a UNIX machine. 
Users and groups are allocated as they are resolved to a range of user and
group ids specified by the administrator of the Samba system.

Currently, the nsswitch module doesn't work on NetBSD as NetBSD doesn't
support dynamically loadable nsdispatch callbacks.  However, the module may (quite usefully) be used to authenticate against
a domain controller for a Windows domain via the NT user authentication

This package currently tracks the winbind components from the Samba 2.2.x
releases, but may be used in conjunction with older Samba 2.0.x releases
as well.
