I just installed this port. For some reason it will not start
correctly. I have all of the information entered in the /etc/rc.conf
file and the slapd.conf and ldap.conf files are configured correctly.

There is no 'PID' file created. Below is what I receive when I attempt
to start or stop the program.

/usr/local/etc/rc.d # ./slapd start
Starting slapd.
/usr/local/etc/rc.d # ./slapd stop 
slapd not running? (check /var/run/openldap/
/usr/local/etc/rc.d # ls /var/run/openldap
/usr/local/etc/rc.d # 

There is a 'socket' created, but that is it. I a pulling my hair out,
what is left of it, trying to figure out what the problem is. Any
