I suspect you instead should use

  X-Start-Before: exim4 postfix

to make sure nslcd start before these.

Yes, that is correct.  This is why I propose to extend the update-rc.d
interface to allow changes without having to throw away local

This do not work with file-rc.  You have to use the interface provided
by update-rc.d to work with both sysv-rc and file-rc.  This only allow
complete removal and insertion. :/
