      In /etc/default/sldap you can tell it to use slapd.conf:

# Location of the slapd configuration to use.  If using the cn=config
# backend to store configuration in LDIF, set this variable to the
# directory containing the cn=config data; otherwise set it to the location
# of your slapd.conf file.  If empty, use the compiled-in default
# (/etc/ldap/slapd.d).

That said, the new way seem to feed the ldap database with the stuff
you had in sladp.conf using ldif files. I personally have not done
that yet though; I am still using  slapd.conf.
