I managed to get this working with XEmacs here at work, with the
following configuration:

1) ~/.eudc-options (this is generated by filling in an EUDC form,
   where I just filled in the name of our AD domain controller):

;; This file was automatically generated by eudc.el.

(provide 'eudc-options-file)
(eudc-set-server "dc2.company.com" 'ldap t)
(setq eudc-server-hotlist 'nil)


2) Since I don't use bbdb at work, and just use the LDAP
   directory for addresses, I used the following:

(eval-after-load 
    "message"
  '(setq message-completion-alist
           ("^\\(Resent-\\)?\\(To\\|B?Cc\\):" . eudc-expand-inline)))

3) Then, I used the following ldap parameters:

(setq ldap-host-parameters-alist
      '(("dc2.company.com" base
         "dc=company,dc=com" binddn "address@hidden" passwd
         "**PASSWORD**" auth simple)))

4) Finally, I have the following parameters which were tweaked
   using custom, to allow matching for the various fields in the
   AD schema, and to specify the expansion format/behavior for
   eudc lookups:

 '(eudc-expansion-overwrites-query t)
 '(eudc-inline-query-format (quote ((sn) (givenName) (givenName
   sn) (mailNickname) (sAMAccountName))))
 '(eudc-strict-return-matches nil)
 '(eudc-inline-expansion-format (quote ("%s <%s>" cn email)))

It's been quite a while since I set this up (almost 2 years
now), but it's worked ever since.  Hope that helps someone...

BTW, I was able to obtain kerberos tickets from the AD KDC, but
I have been (so far) unable to use them to authenticate to the
LDAP service, so I resorted using simple auth.
