I emailed the author of the howto, so hopefully he will update it.

I still think it would make sense to have this information (how to setup an
OSX 10.7+ client) documented directly on freeipa.org like
http://www.freeipa.org/page/FreeIPAv1:ConfiguringMacintoshClients, or at
least have a link to http://www.freeipa.org/page/HowTos under
http://www.freeipa.org/page/Documentation (I could not find a link to
HowTos on freeipa.org without searching for it..).

I may be willing to volunteer to write this updated howto, even though it
would be a 99% copy/paste from linsec.ca .... don't know if that's a good
idea.
