This doesn't directly solve your problem, but have you considered dropping 
PAM and just using saslauthd's built-in ldap support? I'm running it in 
production (2.1.10) talking to ldap://localhost, and have tested it 
successfully with ldaps://remotehost. What does PAM-LDAP buy you that the 
native mechanism doesn't?

(Although as an aside, I strongly second Henrique's advice about checking
which libraries it's picking up: I sweated several hours over a different
saslauthd problem only to find that ldd told me the answer instantly.)
