(ITS#3845) support for SASL binds with plaintext rootpw

Submission from: (NULL) (

If there is a plaintext rootpw configured, then it is possible to hand that to
SASL through the auxprop callback in order to allow a SASL bind against that
account to work. In Mac OS X Server/Open Directory this is used to allow a
replication identity and password to be set up simply with rootpw/rootdn without
requiring another record to be added to the database. This way slurpd can
perform a secure authentication rather than a simple bind.

This patch was originally made against 2.2.19 and then ported it to HEAD.
