I checked out CVS "HEAD" code, if that is, what

 cvs -z3 co -P openldap



does, configured and built it. I might have used a slightly different
configuration than my current production environment, but after building
I was able to run slapd without even a warning about the following

overlay dynlist
dynlist-attrset posixGroup memberURL
dynlist-attrset groupOfURLs memberURL owner

So, the relaxation of the config checking seems to be successful.

Thanks for your fast reaction to my issue report.
