Your slapd was compiled without support for the relay database.

1) check if those rpms provided the relay database as a runtime loadable
module (something called back_relay.la placed somewhere by the rpm
itslef), either in the main rpm or in a dedicated one
2) look for some other packager that builds rpms with back-relay support.
3) get rid of rpms and build it yourself.
4) a less performing alternative consists in using an instance of
back-ldap pointing to the server itself, instead of back-relay
