Just to elaborate on this: slapd sets its default required properties as
(slapd/sasl.c, slap_sasl_init, line 417)

My Cyrus SASL library has the flags for the EXTERNAL mechanism set to

Since the NOANONYMOUS flag isn't present, the client library skips over this
mechanism, unless you somehow override the settings. By the way, I'm using
Cyrus SASL 1.5.24. If there is a newer version that I should be using, let
know. I know this can be overridden in slapd.conf but it seems to me that
slapd doesn't need to set the NOANONYMOUS flag by default.
