The pam_sss module is part of SSSD, which doesn't use /etc/ldap.conf.
The SSSD service is configured in /etc/sssd/sssd.conf, and I think in
F13, it's used when you configure the system to use LDAP.

Other than dropping ldap.conf in place, how did you configure the
system?  Did you choose LDAP during installation, run
system-config-authentication afterward, or something else?
