I would rather keep them, and use a version-specific directory path in the

No, most likely you have some packages that depend on libldap-2.3.so.0 (have 
been linked to it). This is precisely the reason I make the packages install 
in parallel.

Did you over-write schema files from 2.4 with files from your 2.3 installation? 
The 2.4 schema file has the attribute c on line 100 commented out, as it is

Depends what you did to the schema files.

$ rpm -Va openldap2.4-servers

should not show any schema files having been modified ....
