Out of curiosity, why would one want to re-index at startup of slapd?
indices are maintained as data is modified. The only time one needs to
re-index is if they have modified their indices. In OpenLDAP 2.4, it is
trivial to re-index just those attributes that you've modified the indices
for, by passing them to slapindex. This is far superior than attempting to
re-index the entire database, which could take quite a long time on large
