Well, actually usually innetgr(), getnetgrent() etc are built around NSS 
library, so setting correct entry for netgroup in /etc/nsswitch.conf 
will help you (I'm not quite sure about AIX as I haven't seen 5th 
version of it).

You also probably will not have any sudo-specific problems about 
authentication via LDAP.

And regarding file storage... Todd, you've told once there is a principal problem
with sudoers organization which disallows you to use directory for storing configuration.
Could you please explain, what is the problem?
