That worked great.  Well, at least I am able to bind to the directory

But, it seems that the searches are not using GSSAPI to secure the
traffice to the server because when I look at the ldap logs I see that
the ssf is zero.  In our case this means that no data can be returned.
(And, yes, I am a bit fuzzy on the exact details since ldapsearch just
does the right thing for me without my having to think about it.)  Any
ideas on how to deal with this?

Thanks again for you help,
