We are running OpenLDAP in a distributed environment where every server has a local copy of the LDAP database for performance and reliability reasons. The database is 6 GB, so it is non-trivial export it to LDIF and import it again on the 64-bit systems. (It takes way too long).

If this is taking too long, then you're doing something wrong. With OpenLDAP 2.3 and -q (quick mode) we can slapadd a 1 terabyte database in only 8 hours. Your 6GB database could be loaded in just 15 minutes or so.
