Use slaptest instead.
Oh, right, I missed that one. Perhaps this is the missing piece in the docs? It's not obvious how to explain it, though. I'm not sure the sentence below is satisfying.
-F slapd-config-directory Specifies the slapd configuration directory. The default is /usr/pkg/share/examples/openldap/slapd.d. If both -f and -F are specified, the config file will be read and converted to config directory format and written to the specified directory before slapd starts regular operations. slaptest(8) can also be used to just perform the conversion.
Alternatively, perhaps it's the admin guide that should suggest running slaptest -f -F in order to build the cn=config tree from slapd.conf? It does not seem to contain the upgrade procedure at all.
