Thank-you VERY much for sharing these pointers Marc.  I've been trying
to decide between using sssd and nslcd on FreeBSD for some time.  The
sssd requiring MIT kerberos while heimdal use is highly experimental
makes nslcd on BSD's a convenient choice.  Heimdal is part of the base
FreeBSD system.

As an aside, the articles are well written, clear, concise and helpful
so a big thank-you to the author(s) :)
Regards, Dewayne.
