2.1.20 FreeBSD port is out?  OK, looks like the author may have fixed it;
I'll give it a go.

Pretty much what you did...  A client connect with IP4 failed with a
listener on IP4/IP6.  The "fix" was to swap the "localhost" lines in
/etc/hosts to put the IP4 line before IP6:	localhost localhost.my.domain
  ::1		localhost localhost.my.domain

Doing "telnet localhost 389" then worked.

No, we don't use SASL (historical reasons) but do use TLS.

Err, where did you find the 2.1.20 FreeBSD port?  It ain't on FreeBSD.org;
at least, nowhere where I can see it...
