The package description of nscd clearly states when nscd should be
installed. A "wrong" dependency on nscd is no bug with nscd, but with
the software depending on it. Most packages seem to have changed their
behaviour since there are only 5 packages in apt-cache rdepends nscd of
which at least one is a conflict. So maybe libpam-ldap could suggest
nscd instead of recommending it. Otherwise this bug should be tagged
wontfix.
