No, because there's no telling where it will go.

This is usually a problem of improper (or missing) DB_CONFIG (the
openldap-servers package should probably include one in /var/lib/ldap,
not just a sample in a directory where nobody will look).

Also, you can use the "-q" option to speed up slapadd (since you should
have a consistent database already).

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
