Re: OpenLDAP 2.1.3 and Berkeley DB 4.0.14

Is there a chance you've compiled with TCP wrappers support?  You may have
to add an entry to your /etc/hosts.allow file for service 'slapd',
allowing localhost (and other network addresses as desired) to get in.

Happened to me.  Failed test 1 off the bat.  Realized it when I saw the
"connection refused" message in the tests/test-db/master.log file.
