Okay.  A colleague of mine (Dave Hawes, dhawes@vt.edu) supplied the following patch:

 }

== END PATCH ==

The patch forces mod_auth to load after mod_auth_ldap, which in conjunction with
the AuthLDAPAuthoritative allows for a combination of LDAP and .htpasswd users
in the same context.

I realize that this isn't appropriate for the code base at large, as there are
many other mixtures of auth that people use, but hopefully it will help someone
in a similar circumstance who's searching for bugs.

This might be considered a feature request, but it's difficult to see how the
AuthLDAPAuthoritative directive is meaningful if you have to go so far out of
the way to use it.  Maybe a global directive to control the order in which auth
modules load is in order.
