Not sure SASL_MECH works properly (there was an issue
reported with it some time ago).  I suggest that for
those not wanting to support GSSAPI authentication,
that they configure Cyrus SASL without GSSAPI
support (or, if already reconfigured, simply remove
Cyrus SASL's GSSAPI plugin).  You might also be able
to mess with Cyrus SASL's config file for slapd(8).
For further information regarding my suggestions,
please see the Cyrus SASL documentation.
