Incorrect.  Please read the slapd-config(5) man page.  There is no issue 
using the logfile on linux.  If you have questions on how to create one, 
please follow up with the openldap-technical list.  This ITS will be closed.

I would generally note that on linux setting the olcLogfile is not 
necessary, but if you must catch the stderr messages, you may which to do 

I would also note the version of OpenLDAP you are using is quite ancient. 
You'd be better served to upgrade to a current release.
