The only use I can think of for wanting portable.h details
is when a new support engineer needs to reverse engineer
someone else's poorly-documented installed system.

Another use would be to ask people to run slapcat -b cn=monitor when
they report an issue and don't have their build environment available
(e.g. because they didn't build slapd at all :).

Requiring the jump through a database seems unnecessary, it could just be a standard option to slapd and all of the slap tools. Or just slapd and slaptest. Or ...

In particular, if OpenLDAP was built with --disable-monitor then the information would be inaccessible. Not too useful, eh?
