OK, I ran Docbook 4.5 on the output from doclifter and I see it's complaining 
on one line of slapd.conf.5.xml. It appears doclifter is misinterpreting the 
.br request. Instead of inserting a line break it is either ignoring it 
completely or doing a paragraph break.

I'm going to reject your submitted patch because it is not the minimal patch 
needed to fix the error, nor is the error actually in our manpage source, it 
is in the doclifter tool.
