supportedSASLMechanisms -- not found?

How can I get OpenLDAP to use the SASL libraries for authentication?
I have OpenLDAP2.0.7, and ran configure with the following options:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/openldap-1.2.11 \
            --exec-prefix=/usr/local/openldap-1.2.11/libexec \
            --enable-spasswd \

I have Cyrus-SASL 1.5.24 installed.  When I start the ldap server,
and execute ldapsearch -x -s base -b "" supportedSASLMechanisms

I get back:
Version 2:

#filter: (objectclas=*)
# requesting supportedSASLMechanims

# search result
search 2:
result: 0 success

#numResponses: 1

How do I get OpenLDAP 2.0.7 to find/recognize SASL mechanisms?

I note that 2.0 slapd needs some work for EXTERNAL to work
(TLS authid to ACL subject DN mapping).  HEAD has code which
needs testing.  But the client *should* work.

That's odd as there should be no difference in the two until
after the completion of the ldap_start_tls() call.  You might
try adding debugging options on the client side to determine
where their execution paths diverge.
