pres = present (index to make searches quick to determine
presence of absence)

eq = equality (index to make searches quick to determine
equality of this attribute versus something provided) [cn=Tabby]

sub = "substring" (index to make searches fast on determining if
something provided is in this attribute) [cn=*abb*]

aprox = approximate (not really sure what this is for and about)

some of the other things you have mixed in are the attributes
(you can write your slapd.conf to index certian attributes in
certian ways...)
