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.

Administrator's guide of OpenLDAP as found in chapters 5,6 does not
