Yippie!  Welcome to the FreeBSD side of the world :-) :-)

You need the security/cyrus-sasl2 port, not sasl2-saslauthd.

You haven't provided enough context for us to find out what is
going on.  In the future, if you bump against similar errors,
it may be useful to keep a full log of the build commands that
failed, i.e. by running thm inside script(1):

    % script
    Script started, output file is typescript
    % make buildworld buildkernel
      [ snip output ]
    % exit
    exit

    Script done, output file is typescript
    %

Then you can attach the file 'typescript', or filter the file
through col(1) to convert it to plain ASCII text and insert its
contents in an email.

The libsmutil.a library builds fine here with the following in
my `make.conf' file:

    SENDMAIL_CFLAGS=    -I/usr/local/include -DSASL=2
    SENDMAIL_LDFLAGS=   -L/usr/local/lib
    SENDMAIL_LDADD=     -lsasl2

Can you show us what your `make.conf' looks like, and describe how you
tried to build Sendmail?
