There shouldn't be anything special - BUT: you need a PAM module that DOESN'T require root privileges, because ngIRCd calls it with the permission level of the user it is running as ("irc", "nobody", whatever you configured); see ./doc/PAM.txt. So using "UNIX Shadow Passwords" (pam_unix) isn't possible, for example.

But I don't know what your pam_ldap requires …
