Waldemar, I now tried a differente approach: I used our "patented"
pexports method to statically link in the following sasl auth plugins:


But telling from the size of the .egg file, gcc most probably dropped

Could someone with an appropriate setup please check out

try one or more of the above auth mechanisms and report back here?

Thanks in advance
