slap_idassert_parse_cf() is defined in back-ldap, but also used in
back-meta.  There might be other functions shared by the two backends,
so you need to build and load both to make sure back-meta works as a
module.  Historically, the development of the two backends has followed
similar paths, with lots of functionality (and code) sharing between the
two.  Clearly it's a bug that back-meta can be compiled as a module
without back-ldap but then needs it to run, but I don't see a clear way
to resolve it without unnecessary code duplication.
