Seems we need some rework here to allow this case. Currently bconfig assumes
that the olcDatabaseConfig entry is sufficient by itself, and any child
entries underneath are just optional. It doesn't handle the case where the
olcDatabaseConfig entry is basically an incomplete config.
Should work now in git master, please test.
