This is primarily an Apache task. That is one of the major advantages
of being able to host your repository through Apache - you can use any
of Apache's authentication/authorization modules. You can google for a
lot of them. There are two separate modules out there - one is a
third-party module and the other is integrated into Apache. Make sure
you use the integrated one. I am not sure the other is still maintained.

When you set this up, try to use your AD Global Catalog (port 3268)
rather than the standard LDAP port of 389. There is a bug floating out
there (http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=26538) that
still shows as not resolved when connecting through the standard LDAP
