Hmmm...  Must've missed that somehow.  Anyway, my reading of the source 
code shows this:


    if( rs->sr_err == LDAP_SUCCESS && bdb->bi_txn_cp ) {
                TXN_CHECKPOINT( bdb->bi_dbenv,
                        bdb->bi_txn_cp_kbyte, bdb->bi_txn_cp_min, 0 );

TXN_CHECKPOINT() is a macro for (env)->txn_checkpoint(env, k, m, f)

which appears to imply that slapd calls the checkpoint function itself 
after any update (and config.c bdb_db_config() seems to load up the 
checkpoint parameters), hence an external cron job is not necessary?
