This implies that supportedSASLMechanisms attribute is not available
in the Root DSE.  You should be able to use
        ldapsearch -x -b "" -s base supportedSASLMechanisms

to see what is (or isn't) listed.

No. The above operational attribute will automatically be provided.
It will list the mechanisms available to the client.  You may
have no available mechanisms (depending upon your configuration).

Hasn't been written yet.  I posted a note a few days ago describing
how to use SASL...  basically:
  1) first get Cyrus SASL sample server/client working
  (using the service "ldap") as detailed in Cyrus SASL docs.
  2) start slapd
  3) try clients using same authentication information
  you used in step 1.
