I believe that when you use the -f option you need to specify the full
path to the slapd.conf file. If you've installed everything as default
then your slapd.conf should be in /usr/local/etc/openldap and it
doesn't need to be specified on the command line. (Note: I don't know
if the FreeBSD install is any different in this regard than Solaris,
which is what I use.)
