Even with linux compatibilty installed it has no nsswitch support? I
thought if you installed linux compatibilty then nsswitch support works.

FreeBSD 4.10 doesn't appear to have nsswitch support, at least on the
version I have installed under VMware.

FreeBSD 5.x should have nsswitch support.  The original import of
nsswitch into FreeBSD 5.x (from NetBSD) didn't have support for dynamic
nsswitch modules, so you couldn't use winbind.

I understand that FreeBSD 5.3 has dynamic nsswitch support, but as I've
been unable to install 5.3 under VMware I cannot confirm this.
