This message indicates your slapd has no builtin support for the SQL
database.  Either you rebuild it with static support for SQL database, or
you compile the SQL backend as a dynamic module and load it as indicated
in the documentation.  For examples on using slapd with the SQL database,
I suggest you look in the servers/slapd/back-sql/rdbms_depend/ directory. 
The example about MySQL is likely outdated, but it is supposed to work, at
least for a read-only database.
