For reference, my fears were unfounded- the ports guys did help me out,
it is in their jurisdiction.

Secondly, when installing the server the client options need to match.
Plus the versions need to match. I had 2.3.38 client, the server was
2.3.40. Plus I had just the client, the server I was installing had sasl
support so it was installing sasl-ldap client.

In the process of my investigations and experiments I think I managed to
stuff some of my installed ports, but I will cross that bridge when I
get to it...
