The openldap-sasl-server depends on the openldap-sasl-client:

    % pkg_info -r openldap\*
    Information for openldap-sasl-client-2.1.29:
    Depends on:
    Dependency: cyrus-sasl-2.1.18
    Information for openldap-sasl-server-2.1.29:
    Depends on:
    Dependency: rc_subr-1.16
    Dependency: cyrus-sasl-2.1.18
    Dependency: db41-4.1.25_1
    Dependency: openldap-sasl-client-2.1.29

Makes sense if you think about it -- otherwise you'ld end up
installing the server on a machine where you just wanted to install
the client libraries.
