In the case of the unit file proposed, the only system-specific path is 
the path to slapd itself, and the patch already handles substituting 
that at install time.

(OT: /run as a directory and /var/run as a symlink to it for backwards 
compatibility is the cross-distro standard today as far as I'm aware, 
and has been for a few years now. RHEL/CentOS 5/6 are the outliers since 
they predate /run but are still supported.)

Even if you don't want to ship the unit file, please consider at least 
accepting the code change to enable the startup notification, which 
should be completely distro-independent, and no more system-specific 
than any of our other optional library dependencies.
