Linux Directory Services:

This includes client support.  Also:

This is Netscape's Directory SDK for C.  This is nice because it's v3. 
The above project is based on the umich source which is v2.  v3 has some
excellent features and is supported by a lot of commercial type servers.

Both are free software.  The mozilla code for clients is probaby better
since it's actually been touched in the last two years and supports
greater interoperability.  There are the usual licensing issues though.


ps. LDAP is pretty cool.
