The solution I settled on a few years ago (and has been working quite 
nicely since) is the simple mod_auth_pam module for apache and (on 
FreeBSD) using the pam_smb library to pass the requests on to our AD 
servers.  It's an extra step in the process but also enables you to use 
other authentication later if you wish, such as kerberos and have them 
work together.
