I use postfix as an smtp client to deliver email to our enterprise
smtp server. Since the smtp server needs authentication, I used cyrus
sasl with postfix and things worked fine. After a portupgrade, postfix
has stopped working, and gives some wierd authentication error.
Googling did not help much, and hence I am posting here. Relevant
details follow:

Postfix version: postfix-2.4.1,1
Cyrus SASL version: cyrus-sasl-2.1.22

Postfix built with: (contents of makedefs.out)

main.cf has the following entries:
# cyrus sasl stuff
smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
smtp_security_options =

sasl_passwd.db exists created with postmap hash: command

Error in the maillog shows:
May 31 14:35:12 zimbu postfix/smtp[49765]: warning: SASL
authentication failure: GSSAPI Error:  Miscellaneous failure (see
text) (open(/tmp/krb5cc_125): No such file or directory)

smtp.foo.com[xx.xx.xx.xx]: generic failure)

I don't quiet understand the first message of "no such file or directory".

I used exactly the same configuration earlier, and postfix was happily
working for the last year or so. Any pointers to fix this issue will
be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
