STARTUP.NCF - env NDSD_TRY_NMASLOGIN_FIRST=true

Just installed a new server with NW65SP7
Despite saying NO to NMAS during the installation, since none of the clients use this, an unfamiliar line seems to have been added to my STARTUP.NCF as follows:
env NDSD_TRY_NMASLOGIN_FIRST=true
It's possible this is slowing down workstation logins
Can I delete this line without causing myself problems ?

What this line is doing, if I'm remembering right, is telling LDAP to try
incoming passwords against the Universal Password before the NDS password.
So it could slow down LDAP binds if you don't have universal-passwords set
up in your tree.

The setting is used by LDAP only.
