For some of the ports where you can use SASL, all you need to do is

    WITH_SASL= yes

in your /etc/make.conf (or the equivalent in
/usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf) and reinstall.  For some of those ports,
that will cause '-sasl' to be added to the port name.

Other ports have both sasl and non-sasl versions, and you just have to
install the appropriate one.

A further set of ports use the OPTIONS mechanism.  Look in
/var/db/ports for all of the options you've set previously.  For
options using ports, you set the options using the pop-up menu the
first time you install the port, and those settings are remembered
even if you completely deinstall and reinstall the port.  You'll only
see the options setting dialog again if:

    * The set of available options changes with a new revision of the

    * You run 'make config' in the appropriate port directory

    * You delete the appropriate directory from under /var/db/ports

That last option is not generally recommended -- better to use the
mechanisms built into the ports system.
