How can a community user login via API?

Our client has an application hosted on their own webserver.  That application's users need to login to Salesforce via the API (not a web page) as community users.  Is this possible?

I've gotten delegated authentication working, so community users can login via a page and the application servers authenticates them, but I can't login those same users via the API.  I've tried all number of endpoints without success, using https://domain/services/oauth2/token.  I can get it working for normal users, but not community users.

I'd prefer REST, but will settle for SOAP if necessary.
