That's just the alternate package name guessing algorithm
failing to guess the correct alternate package name.  All
it does is a string based match -- and pkgdb seems to think
that 'openldap-server' is a better match to 'openldap-client'
than openldap-sasl-client'.

Just tell pkgdb 'no' and then tell it the correct alternate
package name.  (You can use tab completion there; very handy)
After that, things should go smoothly.

You can use the ALT_PKGNAME hash in /usr/local/etc/pkgtool.conf
to give the correct hint to pkgdb and portupgrade automatically:

    'openldap-client-2.3.*' => 'openldap-sasl-client-2.3.*',

The ALT_PKGDEP hash can be used to autocorrect most of the things
that pkgdb would question you about -- see the comments in the
pkgtools.conf file.
