Attached is a first pass at synching my changes to slapd with your source

I've done diff -c from within the servers/slapd directory and then separated
each of the files into a separate directories depending on what changes
where being made. So we end up with:

1. Patches to move some things from ETCDIR to SBINDIR for install:

2. New functionality, groups and extended regex for ACL's:


3. Ensure modify cannot change CREATETIMESTAMP/CREATOR and add can not


4. Fix bug that prevents adding entry to top level.


5. Allow -d option to be specified multiple times (or each -d argument to
get final debug level ):

6. Check for null ptr in for loop:


7. Force updates on all database writes. This is brute force fix to prevent
server from not flushing cache on exit in some cases (SIGHUP):


Note that I have not tried applying these to your source tree and compiling.
But I have done a visual check to see if there was any obvious problems.
