I assume that you can actually execute that from the command-line...
(As the openldap user).

Do you have AppArmor or SELinux enabled? A security framework of that
sort might well prevent slapd from executing other programs.

Are any of your filesystems mounted with the 'noexec' flag?

Try doing 'cd /' before starting slapd - I notice that your original
post had it starting in your own homedir, which might not be readable
to the openldap user (so it could not do 'pwd' for example).
