The Debian package (upon which Ubuntu's is based) hasn't had mdb added
to the configuration system yet, but the module is installed and can
be used.

However, If you simply installed Ubuntu 14.04 and ran "apt-get install
slapd", you probably don't have 2.4.39, but actually 2.4.31 plus some
patches. Confirm that using "dpkg-query --list slapd" or "apt-cache
policy slapd". That version lacks fixes for some known mdb bugs (e.g.
Debian bug #722090), so if you want to use mdb you should upgrade to a
later version, either building from source yourself, or using the deb
packages provided by ltb-project.org or by Symas.
