No.  The message seems to indicate that your client doesn't have SASL
compiled in, but in any case the -x prevents it from doing a SASL bind,
so you should use something different.  But, as I said before,
authorization and SASL are orthogonal.  Without mucking with SASL, you
can use:

ldapsearch -x -W -D cn=authorizeduser,dc=test \
        -e '!authzid=dn:cn=config,dc=test'

this causes the tool to use the proxyAuthz control on that operation
(the '!' is because the control MUST be critical).
