You really should NOT change these!  Use configure options to
change install locations.   (this comment will be changed in

Debugging is controlled with --enable-debug and --disable-debug

could use 'o=Jefferies & Co., c=US' or 'dc=jefco, dc=com'
(dc style).

You might want to use ldbmcat to verify the db was created
as expected.   Also, a sample of your ldif would be useful
in diag'ing this.

Your backend suffix probably doesn't match the requested DN.
