    According to  pam_ldap.c, there's an option config=, so you should be
able to use a separate ldap configuration for each application's
authentication layer.
    However, I don't have any experience with this.  I'm just in a similar
boat (wanting sendmail and imap to use their own user ids that don't share
passwords with actual system accounts - besides having accounts for
multiple domains).  I still don't know how nss and pam interact here.
The pam_ldap README seems to indicate the pam_ldap module relies on
nss_ldap, but the pam module code seems pretty complete on cursory
inspection.  
   If anyone can explain how nss and pam interact (or if they can just
conflict), please do.  Or provide a pointer to the appropriate FAQ if
this is one.

Thanks,
Lynn
