Please file a bug against the ldap-utils package asking that the NAME
section of its man page be corrected to describe ud-ldap rather than ud.

Just to confirm, do you really mean that 'man ud-ldap' gives you the man
page for "ud - The uptime daemon" rather than "ud - interactive LDAP
Directory Server query program"? If so, that would also be a bug in
man-db. What version of the man-db package is installed, and what does
'accessdb | grep ^ud' say?
