According to CVS, Substring Assertion was added to OpenLDAP on 2007-May-17. Your version of OpenLDAP must be extremely old.

This is referenced in matching types using
partial matching of strings (exactsubstringsmatch,
numericStringSubstringsMatch, ...). I am fairly new to these subjects
and do not understand fully how they operate.

What do you mean which "matching types"? "Matching rules" or "attribute types"?

Is there a way to correct this?

Depends on what you really want to achieve. Can you tell us? Looking into RFC 2252 and RFC 3698 I cannot imagine what you want.

Are the syntaxes and matching types
specified in a way that can be modified dynamically?

Syntaxes and their matching rules have to be coded in C. There's no dynamic configuration for these.

Not yet, I suppose. Eventually, in Forth. http://www.openldap.org/software/roadmap.html
