[sudo-users] Strange sudo with OpenLDAP problem

If you downloaded the head of the cvs tree you are running sudo 1.7
beta which uses /etc/nsswitch.conf to determine where to find sudoers
info.  You need a line in there like:

sudoers: ldap

Otherwise, sudo will only look in /etc/sudoers.  Prior versions of
sudo were not nsswitch-aware.
