Package source is unavailable, URL in the package returns what appears to be a domain parking page.
I included both packages as they are hosted by the same project.

I believe the two packages could be dropped as the functionality is provided by nss-pam-ldapd.

Additional info:
* nss_ldap 265-7
* pam_ldap 186-6

Steps to reproduce:
Attempt to build either package.

These packages should be dropped and replaced by nss-pam-ldapd which is in community now.

You don't want to load libldap in every process on the system. That's why nss-pam-ldapd implemented it with a standalone daemon that does the ldap operations.
