openldap-2.4.35: "failed to start slapd"

FreeBSD-8.3 STABLE amd64

I updated the openldap port to the latest version last night:


Now, LDAP will not start. All I get is this when I try to start it:

/usr/local/etc/rc.d # ./slapd start
Starting slapd.
./slapd: WARNING: failed to start slapd

I tried rebuilding the programs and when that failed, I did a complete
removal of them plus the "/usr/local/etc/openldap" directory and then
rebuilt the ports. The problem still remains. I NEED openldap running.
Has anyone else experienced this problem or have an idea how I can get
it up and running? I don't want to file a PR if I am the only user with
this problem.
