I posted a note "Instructions for doing authentication with LDAP" on the 4th
October.  The final section discusses backends, which is what you need.  A
backend is a program which handles an LDAP request.  Your backend programs
will make SQL calls to your MySQL server.

Note that there are two user guides for slapd.  One discusses backends, the
other doesn't.
