In regards to OpenLDAP provided clients, this flag will disable
all support for SASL services in the clients.  Also, ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s() won't be available in the library.

However, your clients still can implement SASL mechanisms themselves
through use of ldap_sasl_bind_s() and other low-level calls.  But
I generally don't recommend that approach.
