I found this. It seems to imply that you need different sockets to do
what you want to do. You might snag a copy of the latest openldap code
and look at slapd to see what it's doing.
At any rate, here's what I found that pointed me at it:
slapd compiled with --enable-ipv6 does only listen to the IPv6 connections. I
suspect this is tested on an operating system that receives IPv4 connections to
the IPv6 socket as well, although this is not not the case for OpenBSD (nor
FreeBSD or NetBSD ,IIRC). slapd needs to listen to both IPv4 and IPv6 on
