Right -- the sasl versions of the OpenLDAP client+server can be
updated exactly as I showed.  Just make sure you edit pkgtools.conf's
MAKE_ARGS array so that 'WITH_SASL=yes' gets supplied to the
openldap22 ports as well as the openldap21 ports.

The ordering requirements are basically like I said: openldap client
first, then openldap server then everything else that depends on
openldap client.  If you just let portupgrade sort out the order of
all the other dependencies it will (probably) work just fine.

Since you can install several different versions of the BDB libraries
simultaneously, just install the one you want right at the
beginning. Hmmm.. of course, this shouldn't need to be said, but make
sure you dump out the contents of your LDAP server in ldif format or
otherwise make a backup of it in a format *which doesn't depend on the
precise version of the BDB libs you have installed*.  I think BDB's
on-disk data formats are pretty much compatible across versions, but
I'm not entirely certain.  Obviously make sure slapd and slurpd aren't
running when you start doing any of this.
