Well, "slapd -V 2>&1 | head -n1 | awk -F " " '{ print $4 }'" works for
me. Or isn't this what you meant?

Use something like: slapd -VV 2>&1|head -n1|awk '{print $4}'

Unless you want a stray slapd running ... (which you may get with  just -V).

ldapsearch -VV 2>&1|head -n1|awk '{print $5}'

Headers you have, but for libraries ... I'd use my package management
system (e.g. 'rpm -qf --qf "%{VERSION}\n"
/usr/lib64/libldap-2.3.so.0'). You shouldn't have any software
installed except by your package management system :-P.
