I think recent versions of slapd are getting better in this area. They have a new database backend, mdb, which has no configuration knobs at all, and yet outperforms hdb/bdb. So operationally, administering slapd is a lot easier than it used to be (particularly since the hdb/bdb docs say "read the Berkeley DB documentation", which Oracle have now helpfully broken all the links to...)
Of course, you still have to decide on your schema, and come up with tools for creating and maintaining objects, set up replication and so on.
