If an anonymous user can't get to the content without logging in , 
surely that means they will never see any breadcrumbs containing that 
object unless they log in first, and then only when specifically viewing 
that object. So I don't quite see the problem here.... ;-)

If you just want to switch off breadcrumbs entirely for your site, you 
could simply switch if off in the stylesheet with something like:
#portal-breadcrumbs {
    display : None;
