Thanks for your bug report. Your debdiff doesn't work as expected as
/var/run is a tmpfs directory and is recreated every time the system is

Moreover, according the init script /etc/init.d/slapd, the symlink is
there to maintain backward compatibility with openldap 2.1 client

    # Backward compatibility with OpenLDAP 2.1 client libraries.
    if [ ! -h /var/run/ldapi ] && [ ! -e /var/run/ldapi ] ; then
        ln -s slapd/ldapi /var/run/ldapi
