Note: on editing slapd.conf, I see that prompt IO is directed to the
file, not to the console. That is the file contains the prompts:
"rootpw New password:"
"Re-enter new password:"
Apparently FreeBSD doesn't provide a usable getpassphrase() in its libc, so a
replacement in the OpenLDAP code is used instead. The OpenLDAP code is now
fixed in HEAD.
