That's interesting. I using the self compiled version from openldap.org (2.3.38), and I have no file by either of those names on my server, and nothing in the "prefix" directory specified at compile time. Is it an option that has to be enabled at compile?
No, no ;-)
If you compiled yourself, you have to enable syslog for OpenLDAP and then *you* can pick where your log file lives.
The fact Richard mentioned "service ldap start" means he's on a RPM based distro, and the log files usually live in /var/log/*
Hope that clears things up.
