I looked back through my original notes, and it was compiled with the 64-bit libraries
(even ran ldd on slapd to double-check). Looking at the links, and the libraries
something was changed in Feb 2013 (so, I wasn't the culprit as I was not here then).
What I did as fix (no, not the best solution but mainly for a test -- we are not using
SASL, anyway), was modify the links in the 32-bit directory and point them to their 64-bit
equivalent. Ran some tests commands, such as slapcat, and they ran with out those ELF32
errors popping up.
I am setting up the LTB repository, and starting down the upgrade path at the same time
trying to get the original build back to where it was when I left the company. The
replication was stopped, at some point, and the dbase corrupted on the replication
receiver. At this point, was able to get the slapd running again on the receiver...
Thanks for the assistance. There will be more questions as I go. I haven't touched

You can quickly upgrade if you use the LTB packages... Which are more
sanely built than the RH ones anyway, which I'm going to guess you are
using based on the version.
