I have deleted nslcd as the maintainer admitted it was only created because
nss-ldapd was not working. 

It looks like it should be called "nss-pam-ldapd" (same as upstream). The
maintainer of that updated a package a month ago, so worth sending them an
email to help fix/update the package.  If they do not respond within two weeks
we can disown it so you can update it.
