nssdb: The Berkeley DB NSS (name service switch) module1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

The Berkeley DB NSS module provides an alternative means for storing configuration information traditionally kept in several plain-text files in `/etc' (e.g. `/etc/passwd'). The module uses the Berkeley DB Library to store this information in several database files in `/var/db' (e.g. `/var/db/passwd.db'). Using these databases can lead to a considerable speedup if the files in `/etc' are large (e.g. on a system with a lot of accounts).
