SASL's always necessary for Cyrus. You want saslauthd, possibly with -a
ldap. That switch is dependent on whether or not you want saslauthd to
authenticate directly to LDAP. Leave it off if you're using something
like pam_ldap (how I personally have it set up, and thus recommended).
The use of LDAP as a global address book is a function of your mail
client, and has nothing to do with Cyrus.
