I'm experiencing similar issues with ldapsearch command, though no issues
authenticating for logon, ssh (to linux machines), DNS updates, and
directory services. I'm confident the issue lies with MacOS.
I'm running MacOS 10.12.6 and IPA 4.5.
I'll keep digging, just wanted to let you know you've been heard.

The GSSAPI attempts from the MAc side are only attempted when a binddn
(security -> "use authentication when connecting") account is provided.
Otherwise I suspect it's unable to even work out what type of GSSAPI
transaction to attempt..
