ldapi:/// defaults to LDAP_RUNDIR/run/ldapi, where LDAP_RUNDIR is whatever
you configured OpenLDAP with (by default, /usr/local/var).  The path to
ldapi must exist, and the user that's running slapd must have permissions
to create the socket.

so ldapi:// works as expected.

I suggest you ask the developers of hdb-ldap.c and heimdal to allow to
configure the name of the socket it uses.

"strace" may help.
