No.  OpenLDAP 1.x only provodes ldap_modrdn which allows you to
rename a leaf entry RDN.  Our LDAPv3 implementation, when released,
will support ldap_rename a leaf entry's RDN and superior DN.  There
is no standard track method for renaming whole subtrees as of yet
(though this is being worked on by the IETF LDAPext WG).

To workaround these limitations, you can use ldbmcat | editor | ldapadd.
