Thanks, true ! SASL_CB_GETPATH was defined by broken patch.

More about docs. I look to sasl.h and I not found sasl_getpath_t in first

 * Server only Callbacks:
 *  sasl_authorize_t             user authorization policy callback
 *  sasl_getconfpath_t           get path to search for config file
 *  sasl_server_userdb_checkpass check password and auxprops in userdb
 *  sasl_server_userdb_setpass   set password in userdb
 *  sasl_server_canon_user       canonicalize username routine

 *  sasl_dispose      Connection done: Dispose of sasl_conn_t
 *  sasl_getprop      Get property (e.g., user name, security layer info)
 *  sasl_setprop      Set property (e.g., external ssf)

More, I looked to the Debian's patch set and found what sasl_getconfpath_t
used for client. Is some changes not reflected here ?
