I am building OpenLDAP 2.4.13 (on RHEL5 if it matters) and using the
--program-suffix option of configure so I can install this without
replacing Red Hat's version (this time).

What I'm finding though is that although the binaries have the suffix --
/usr/sbin/slaptest2.4 (for example).  The slapd binary does not
understand that "slaptest2.4" should make it run as the slaptest tool --
and it executes as slapd.

Is this behavior expected (ie, using this feature, I need to patch the
tools array in servers/slapd/main.c to put the suffix on the char string
for matching purposes)?

File an ITS? I'd assume we'd want this to work correctly.
