You can get slapd source packages and change the flags as you want.
Serious distribution packages as Debian packages shouldn't
be discouraged by OpenLDAP dev team as I'm seeing here. Debian packages
policy are very strong and help a lot stable environments to be bug-free
from recent less stable versions. I use Debian as a protection from that
too early versions who can potentially threat my production environment
and I was very successful with Debian packages in this attempt.

You can also look for support on Debian IRC channels and lists.

Hi Matheus,

I'll note that article was written by one of the Debian openldap package maintainers. And it is quite correct that anyone wanting to run a *stable* OpenLDAP production environment should most definitely *not* use the ones provided by most Linux OS providers, *particularly* Debian/Ubuntu. The reasons why this is the case have been hashed over many, many times. Particularly, the use of GnuTLS which is horribly broken being one of the major reasons. The fact that they are not kept up to date with current stable releases is another.
