The LDIF in that section on the website apepars, to my eyes, to be 
acceptable, on a piece-wise basis BY THE ldapadd AND/OR ldapmodify 

If you cannot figure out how to set up your server to that its cn=config 
tree can modified with ldapadd and ldapmodify, then stop playing with 
replication and figure that out.

Nope, sorry, that's not something that the project documents.  It may be 
possible in some cases but in general you need to use ldapmodify

I stand by my assertion that not all the chunks there are valid RFC 2849 
LDIF.  OpenLDAP's ldapmodify accepts them, but at least this chunk may be 
rejected by other tools that comply with the standard and cannot be 
considered portable
     dn: cn=config
     changetype: modify
     replace: olcServerID
     olcServerID: 1 $URI1
     olcServerID: 2 $URI2
     olcServerID: 3 $URI3

as it lacks the required terminating "-" line.
