Re: Configure options for portable install

strings -a on a stripped slapd shows only a few paths so far as I can tell:

default location of slapd.d, overridable with "-F"
default location of slapd.conf, overridable with "-f"
default location of "ldapi" socket, overridable with "-h"
default location of openldap-data directory, overridable with "directory"

It seems to me that all of them are easily overcome--the only default I
stick with is the location of slapd.conf. Surely you'd be better off
carefully writing your init script and/or slapd configuration than working
to modify the slapd defaults?
