Since the "olcBdbConfig" is defined in back_bdb module, and back_bdb
registers it when loaded, I find it hard to figure out how an error
message related to "olcBdbConfig" being undefined could mention the module
that would load it.  As a general rule, trying to use a module prior to
loading it sounds a bit braindead.  It is just one step away from
documenting the need to switch the computer on before using ldapadd.
