Another possibility would be to always enable LDAP_DEBUG_CONFIG for the 
tools. The only reason I suggest this is because I would prefer that 
runtime configuration errors are only logged when specifically 
requested, not at DEBUG_ANY. Since the error messages are already 
returnes to the client in the protocol, it's not always necessary to log 
them separately.
