I am using openldap-2.3.39 on Ubuntu.
Here is the output:
su root -d 65535 -c /usr/local/libexec/slapd
su: invalid option -- d
Usage: su [options] [LOGIN]
Obviously this is wrong since you use option -d for the su command.
How about doing "su -" just to get root and then use
/usr/local/libexec/slapd -d 65535 [..other needed args..]
You also have to check your syslog and which user is running slapd normally.
