[Samba] bindpw in ldap.conf

Sorry if this question is more for the LDAP community, but since I ran 
into this via the Samba3 by Example book, I'm asking here.  :)

As described in Chapter 6, PAM and NSS Client Configuration, in the 
ldap.conf file, is it necessary to have the bindpw line?  From what I 
have seen, ldap.conf needs to be world readable and having that entry 
would seem to me to be a security risk.  Am I right?  If so, is there a 
way round the security issue?

Thanks all.
