while fiddling around with OpenLDAP 2.3.37 as taken from the ports collection I revealed something strange. Looking at the manpage of slapd I was taught that if neither -F nor -f option is applied when the SLAPD starts, default config directory /usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.d/ is searched for dn=config.ldif. So I did, I configured my own dn=config.ldif file as it is described in chapter 5 and 6 of the OpenLDAP Administrator's documentation. But with FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT and the port I run into something strange not being consistent with the documentation: the start of the slapd server was avoided by an error telling me there wasn't any readable slapd.conf file. What is that? Test with slaptest tells a syntactically correct slapd.d/ directory, but slapd won;t start. Touching an empty slapd.conf let the server start.

The documents tell one that slapd.conf is a kind of deprecated, but it seems still in use.

On the other hand, typing in the configuration taken from the Administrator's guide of OpenLDAP as found in chapters 5,6 does not work! Strange.
