Yes. My point is: why doesn't this work for you?
It does (and is for now), but requires I edit the system startup script

What other method would you suggest?
That slapd never make a syncrepl request with deref aliases enabled
(regardless of global ldap.conf settings), as that will always fail. Or a
mechanism allowing specific ldap options to be set for slapd either in the
config file or via command line options. Per Howard's suggestion, I opened
an ITS for each of those.
I would probably reject the latter, since such mechanisms already exist.
You're just unwilling to use them.
I should note that /etc/init.d/slapd was not provided by us. A reasonable
distro packager always provides the ability to source an external config file
for site-specific options in their init.d scripts. Whether yours does or not
is not an OpenLDAP Project concern though.
