sasl auth problem

Hi out there, 

I have some now really annoying problem with setting up OpenLDAP with
SASL authentification.

I posted some time ago and tried since then to narrow the problem, but I
got no further results on my own.

Well, the problem is when I try to start slapd, nothing happens, and it
happens like that:

# ./slapd -d 255
@(#) $OpenLDAP: slapd 2.0.25-Release (Sun Aug 25 ...

daemon_init: <null>
daemon_init: listen on ldap:///
daemon_init: 1 listeners to open...
daemon: initialized ldap:///
daemon_init: 1 listeners opened
slapd init: initiated server.
sasl_server_init failed
slapd shutdown: freeing system resources.
slapd stopped.
connections_destroy: nothing to destroy.

I tried to recompile everything, no success.
I tried the sasl example applications, they worked.
I searched for slapd.conf (the sasl one, NOT the OpenLDAP one), no
I traced slapd, nothing special.
I tried some slapd.conf's (again the ones for SASL), nothing worked
(this might be cause I have no clue how they do have to look and what I
can write in there. this was more like a try&error approach).

Now my question is: how can I set up OpenLDAP for authentification
against passwd/plain with sasl? I really don't have any idea what to do
right now.

Helpful would be: 
- a description about the sasl app.conf files (especially the one for
slapd :-)
- hints what to try or where to search to find out why sasl_server_init

Thanks very much in advance,
