You mean 2.2.8, I presume.

Maybe something in the FAQ... we want to keep the Quick Start Guide lean.
We will add a comment to slapd.conf so that folks realize the directory
needs to exist (and be writable to slapd).

In the next release, the default, IIRC, will be $localstatedir/openldap-ldbm
(where $localstatedir is determined by configure based upon user input)
AND the install script creates it.  /tmp or other world-writable directory
was a bad choice, I pressumed it was assumed that folks would specify
something better.
