I ran slapd with -d-1 and all I could get is:

hdb_back initialize: Sleepycat Software: Berkeley DB 4.3.21
LDAP Chain Response overlay setup failed, err -1
slapd destroy: freeing System resources
slapd stopped

I had no chain overlay configured, not even compiled.
Now I have compiled OpenLDAP-2.3.0alpha without any dynamic loadable
modules but everything compiled in, and installed. The ldif file is
loaded without any complains and slapd runs fine now.
I think I will file an ITS.
