I just pushed a rebuilt archboot in testing.

BTW, there seem to be a permission issues for openldap when slapd is
run as non-root: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/25168

I'm not sure if slapd is even meant to be run as non-root (you need to
be root to read its config file) or if the one in the old package was
working as non-root. So the rebuild will need to stay in testing until
I figure it out.
