It should, because it calls this:

Yes, you need to install saslauthd, however, if you checked the OPTION
when you installed Postfix, it's most likely already installed.  You
*also* need to enable saslauthd in /etc/rc.conf:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/ports/mail/postfix]# grep sasl /etc/rc.conf
saslauthd_flags=" -a pam -n 2"

(This uses /etc/passwd through pam, btw.)

Look at /usr/local/etc/rc.d/saslauthd.sh for the options and flags
available or read man (8) saslauthd.

Either I'm totally fubar, or the ports snapshot I have is braindead as I did
select the SASL option when I built postfix and I have sasl libs in
/usr/local/lib and /usr/local/lib/sasl2 but none of the other sasl components
are installed.  No saslauthd in /usr/local/etc/rc.d, no manpage, just
libraries mentioned above, and my postfix smtpd does appear to have a sasl
library run-time dependency per ldd.

Is the better fix to manually re-install the same Cyrus sasl port or
deinstall both it and postfix and rebuild postfix with the sasl option and
hope I get a complete build?

If Postfix is working as you expect (except for auth of course), I would just force the reinstall of sasl (or deinstall and reinstall if that's your preferred method.)

Saslauthd is installed in /usr/local/sbin/saslauthd, btw.
