RE: Configure options for portable install

My thanks to Matthew and Aaron.
I only needed to modify my configurations and use a startup script.  The
folder pathnames in the binaries threw me off earlier, but they don't
seem to affect anything.  slapd's up and working now.

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

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

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
to modify the slapd defaults?
