It is using "db46" although I have both "db48" and "db5" on my system.
I would like to switch everything over to using "db5"; however, I am
not sure how to accomplish that with openldap. I did see a patch for
Debian a while back though.

In any case, this is the first time this has happened in over 12 years
of using and updating "openldap". It may have just been a fluke.
