ITS is for bug reports/enhancements.  Use the openldap-technical
mailinglist for help reqests.

Anyway: No, soundex/metaphone is hardcoded in slapd approx match.
See <openldap source>/servers/slapd/phonetic.c.  Clients can do
a little of this "by hand" by inserting many variants of a name
(e.g. o instead of ö) as invisible attribute values in the
directory, see the x-hidden examples in man slapd.conf.

Closing this ITS.
