A substring index for dn used to be created by default -- it no longer is.
You can add it back in if you want.  The consequence of not having it is
that subtree searches with bases other than your suffix will take longer.
However, in some cases this can be worked around by using onelevel searches,
which aren't affected by this change.

I also recall some tools (slurpd and slapd) being moved from sbin to libexec.
