Yes, there is, since OpenLDAP uses autoconf, libtool & co with defaults
that get in the way of debugging:

Openldap 'make install' strips debugging symbols, so you must either run
slapd from the source tree or install with 'make install STRIP=:' or
something, I don't remember at the moment.

Also it helps debugging to remove the optimize option which OpenLDAP
uses by default if it can compiler-specific, but with gcc that's
     ./configure CFLAGS="-g"

I'll make a note to update that one a bit.
