(Answer) (Category) OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : (Category) OpenLDAP Software FAQ : (Category) Installation : (Category) Why did 'cd tests; make test' fail? : (Answer) Are TCP wrappers (tcpd) installed but not configured properly?
slapd will attempt to authorize client access using TCP wrappers, if installed (unless ./configure --without-wrappers).

For tests to complete, localhost access must be allowed. Add the following to the top of your /etc/hosts.allow (location may differ):

  slapd : localhost : ALLOW

or (depending on the TCP wrapper version):

  slapd : localhost

This still won't work if SLAPD_RLOOKUPS isn't defined.
        a) ./configure ... --enable-rlookups
Or in /etc/hosts.allow
        slapd : : ALLOW
