installing slapd no_configuration true


I have been trying to install slapd without configuration, so I could
do the configuration manually [specifically to customize my
"organization" objectClass].

I have been using debconf-set-selections and noninteractive install.
It worked fine when I would do non interactive config database
configuration and also DIT database configuration.
When I set "slapd slapd/no_configuration boolean true" setup fails.
The error is below:
Omitting slapd configuration as requested.
 * No configuration file was found for slapd at /etc/ldap/slapd.conf.
invoke-rc.d: initscript slapd, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing package slapd (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Processing triggers for ureadahead (0.100.0-16) ...
Processing triggers for ufw (0.34~rc-0ubuntu2) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I understand that the issue might be debian-related and have little to
do with OpenLDAP, per say. Still, to be sure that I did not do
something completely wrong, and to tap into collective wisdom; I would
love for someone experienced to comment.

What would be the easiest way to install slapd, ideally with config
database setup, without a DIT database? I want to manually add DIT
database[s] later. I got that part down.
