The external SASL mechanism is for authenticating with client side SSL certificates. This is outlined in http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4422.txt

Example usage:

    irc.server.test.ssl_cert = "~/testcert.pem"
    irc.server.test.sasl_mechanism = external
    irc.server.test.capabilities = "sasl"

Remember to add the certificate to any services such as NickServ

    /NickServ cert add

Note, this works with InspIRCd 2.1 and Charybdis 3.4 with Atheme 7

You can find the patch for this https://github.com/kylef/weechat/commit/e41c15e3e0b09d41dc342271b93bb16b694065f0
