OpenLDAP's (and smbldap-tools's) configure script has
--with-subdir option. This option defaults to "/openldap". (/smbldap-tools)
$ grep subdir configure.in build/top.mk
configure.in:[ --with-subdir=DIR change default subdirectory used for installs],
configure.in: no) ldap_subdir=""
build/top.mk:ldap_subdir = @ldap_subdir@
build/top.mk:datadir = @datadir@$(ldap_subdir)
build/top.mk:moduledir = @libexecdir@$(ldap_subdir)
build/top.mk:sysconfdir = @sysconfdir@$(ldap_subdir)
