Hi Ali,

The recommended version of BDB to use with OL is still 4.2.52 + patches, 
which is likely why the DB_CONFIG file shipped with OpenLDAP has the BDB 
4.2 syntax in it.  However, for fast operations (slapadd or slapindex) in 
2.3, you can ignore these parameters altogether with BDB 4.2 or BDB 4.3, 
and simply use the "-q" flag to the tools instead.  The lines you reference 
should really be pulled from the 2.3 version of DB_CONFIG altogether, and 
likely replaced with "# Use -q for fast operations while running slapadd or 
slapindex" or something similar.
