That error only tells that HAVE_SYSLOG was not defined when compiling
sasl - really stupid: it rather should return the real error
(HAVE_SYSLOG can't be defined on Windows because it doesn't have syslog.h).

I got to reproduce the problem and while it took me quite a while to
figure out the problem, I got it now:
the reason it does not work is because your server is configured to
provide encryption with RC4, but our dlls are compiled only to use DES
encryption (which is a *lot* better).
I've now enabled RC4 in our sasl dlls too, so it should work with your
configuration too.

I'm currently running some more tests before I commit that change. You
can expect a new 1.5.x nightly in a few hours...
