I think the point he's trying to make is that most of your howto is 
how to setup pg_hba.conf (which is in the docs anyway) and how to set up pam_ldap
for a service (which is really a pam howto).

It'd be nice if the docs at 

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/interactive/auth-methods.html#AUTH-PAM

said 

'you need to createuser(8) a postgres user too. PAM is only used to 
validate a username/password pair - the user has to exist in postgres as well.'

and it will, once it updates :)
