I just got sudo setup on 6.2. You do use /etc/nslcd.conf, but you
don't have to install the nslcd daemon to get it working. It just
looks to that file for the config. So remove nslcd and then just
create the /etc/nslcd.conf from scratch and put in what they specify
on the documentation. Make all of the other changes they mention and
it will just work!

Type sudo -V to be sure, but look for the ldap.conf path (on my 5.8 it
is /etc/ldap.conf). I haven't set this up yet, but I assume that you
can just add the config mentioned in the docs to ldap.conf along with
all of the other changes and you're off. As it worked perfectly on
6.2, I'm guessing it will also work on 5.8.
You can look through bugzilla and see the various discussions about
all of this, but suffice it to say there has been a fair amount of
discussion as to where to locate this sudo ldap config. I think it is
headed for /etc/ldap.sudo or something like that in 6.3, but as long
as you put it where sudo is looking for it, everything should work.
If you still can't get it to work, Adam Young has written a script
that you can look at to explain the process:
