This is by design. By default, libldapdb will always fail to load in slapd.
slapd doesn't need it, it has its own built in. slapd must never successfully
load the libldapdb plugin, otherwise it will cause an infinite loop.

Use ldd on libldapdb.so and see what libraries it's looking for. Make sure
all of those libraries can be located at runtime.

This is the rule I added to my sasl/plugins/Makefile to build the module:

libldapdb.la: ldapdb.lo
        $(LINK)  $(libsasldb_la_LDFLAGS) ldapdb.lo -lldap -llber $(LIBS)
