Request #43233 SASL options do not load - Missing SASL support in windows builds

Using Windows 2003 I seem to have no way to use LDAP_SASL_BIND().  All LDAP functions work otherwise. Error is as follows:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function ldap_sasl_bind()

Manual says to compile with --with-ldap-sasl but that is not an option for Windows deployments.

Reproduce code:
if ($connect=ldap_connect($ldap_server)) {
	ldap_set_option($connect, LDAP_OPT_PROTOCOL_VERSION, 3);
	ldap_set_option($connect, LDAP_OPT_REFERRALS, 0);
	if ($bind=ldap_sasl_bind($connect, $auth_user, $password)) {
		return true;
	else {
		print ldap_error($connect) . '<br />';
}//if connected to ldap
return false;

Expected result:
return true or return false

Actual result:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function ldap_sasl_bind()

This is not a bug, just missing feature or rather: missing sasl support in the ldap libraries used to build win32 binaries.

Can it be added in or perhaps a special build made so I can use this feature?  Do I have any other options besides moving to a non-Windows platform?

There is still no sasl support in ldap on Windows binaries (5.2.x or 5.3.x)
Why isn't it activate by default on Windows ? A lot of Active Directory Ldap server require a strong authentication like 'DIGEST-MD5' which is only provided by ldap_sasl_bind.

I don't think it can be done easily and it seems that even if it was supported, there are some issues with this auth method and AD (wrong enconding).

I will try to take a look at that for trunk, but don't hold your breath, that won't happen in 5.3.x for now.
