In the script, the import isn't from LDAP to phpBB but from xoops to
LDAP. After that, and with the phpBB properly configuered, any user in
LDAP could be able to do login to phpBB system. phpBB automatically
inserts the user record in the phpBB.user table for that LDAP user entry
if it doesn't exist in it.

Yes. Yesterday night it seemed to work with 2 xoops users, 2 xoops
forums, and a small (2 or 3) set of topics and posts inside them.
