SLAPI does not work properly on AIX (ITS#3272)

Slapd linking against libslapi.a causes it to behave unpredictably on AIX. It
needs to link against the dynamic library (the same one that plugins link

Really, slapd should respect --enable-dynamic if slapd was so built. It just so
happens that this appears to be necessary on AIX (note that I'm building
everything -brtl, which means that the runtime linker is used rather than
compile time linking against shared libraries).

I needed a patch like:

The copying of libslapi.a in servers/slapd/Makefile can probably be ditched.
