According to my testing the libraries are installed and working. I was
able to "authenticate" via CRAM-MD5 using sample-server and sample-client.
The funny thing is that neither program will run properly as a
non-root user. As a non-root user sample-server will only load the
PLAIN, ANONYMOUS, and LOGIN plugins. As root it will also load
CRAM-MD5 and DIGEST-MD5. sample-client just exits immediately when run
as a non-root user. Once run as root however, I can authenticate.

The only plugins slapd will load are PLAIN, ANONYMOUS, and LOGIN.

Any ideas/suggestions?
