I think Tyler was asking about the source location, not the run-time destination, although his original question wasn't frame correctly. (Just based on a prior conversation we'd had) We have prior art for src/lib/i18n_module, so I suggest src/lib/nss_module. FYI: the run-time modules are presently searched for in the `standard dlopen() search path', which is generally /usr/lib (default) or /lib:/usr/lib (for /bin and /sbin). | > /etc/nss_xxx.conf | > /etc/nssiwtch.d/nss_xxx.conf | | /etc/nsswitch.d/ seems preferable to me.

Thus, /etc/nsswitch.d/ldap.conf for /lib/nss_ldap.so.0 For example, /etc/nsswitch.d/dns.conf could contain a superset merge of /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/hesiod.conf, if we chose to do that. Luke.
