Sounds like you have not tried it...

Try it and then we talk... :)

seriously, on 2.0.6, the support is not there.  Compiling with
--with-ldap, it simply tells you that the feature is not there yet.

I have not seen 2.0.7beta yet, so don't know if it's there or not.

In any case, my guess is that it can work but most likely in an
non-encrypted approach.  And if you are ok with that, then simply use
the --with-pam approach, then look at pam-ldap.  Assuming your OS
handles pam.

My .02...
