It would be nice to get configure to support all of OpenLDAP, either
with ./configure --recursive and --help=recursive or with something
like --<help/enable>-<contrib, unsupported, experimental or whatever>.

What are the criteria for putting something in contrib/ anyway?
If I understand contrib/README correctly it's for formal reasons,
"distributed with OpenLDAP Software, [but] not part of OpenLDAP
Software".  Not sure what that means for the current non-contrib
overlays, all have Copyright OpenLDAP Foundation - though some have
other copyrights as well.
