(ITS#5983) ldappasswd returns "Additional info: password hash failed" in Solaris 10 SPARC

I am trying to change a password for ldap entry using ldappasswd -vx
-D "cn=root,dc=test,dc=com" -w foobarr
"uid=mariusp,ou=people,dc=test,dc=com" and reply I get is:

Result: Other (e.g., implementation specific) error (80)
Additional info: password hash failed

This error occurs if password-hash is set to SSHA, SMD5 and CRYPT. It works fine
if it is CLEARTEXT, SHA and MD5.

I am running openldap 2.4.11 on Solaris 10 latest on SPARC. It is in testing
meaning there is nothing special about its configuration all defaults. Database
has two entries just to play with.

Same error occurs if I use downloaded pre-compiled version from sunfreeware.com
or compile it myself using gcc.
