As per:

You must install OpenLDAP from CVS to obtain the rdnval overlay. 

Do you really want and need the OpenLDAP backend?  The normal LDB
backend supports a wider range of features and is the one under day to

replication with DRS going, and while it will remain, it cannot
interoperate with any other Windows DC in the forest.
