Unhelpful error message (ITS#668)

There's an ambigous error message in slurpd's sanity() function.  The problem
arises when slapd.conf does not contain a "replogfile" directive.  The error
message you get is:

Error: : directory does not exist

Perhaps in the sanity() check, you can see if the replogfile slapd.conf
directive exists, and if not, error out with an error message similar to:

Error: replogfile directive not defined in slapd.conf

Another small thing i've noticed that even after you define the replogfile
directive in slapd.conf, the server does not actually open (ie create) that file
until a modification is made.  You may want to have the slapd server at least
touch that file on startup.

Thanks for the great software!
