nope.... you just need the equivalent NSS module to allow libc to dig
up the relevant info. So if you're using pam_ldap to allow users to
authenticate via ldap, then if you have /lib/libnss.ldap.so libc can
automagically use ldap to fill in info about a user.
same for /etc, nis, mysql, etc.. they all need an nss module.
