Building Postfix with Cyrus SASL support

The following assumes that the Cyrus SASL include files are in /usr/local/include, and that the Cyrus SASL libraries are in /usr/local/lib.

On some systems this generates the necessary Makefile definitions:

(for Cyrus SASL version 1.5.5):
% make tidy # if you have left-over files from a previous build
% make makefiles CCARGS="-DUSE_SASL_AUTH -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL \
    -I/usr/local/include" AUXLIBS="-L/usr/local/lib -lsasl"
(for Cyrus SASL version 2.1.1):
% make tidy # if you have left-over files from a previous build
% make makefiles CCARGS="-DUSE_SASL_AUTH -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL \
    -I/usr/local/include/sasl" AUXLIBS="-L/usr/local/lib -lsasl2"

On Solaris 2.x you need to specify run-time link information, otherwise ld.so will not find the SASL shared library:

(for Cyrus SASL version 1.5.5):
% make tidy # if you have left-over files from a previous build
% make makefiles CCARGS="-DUSE_SASL_AUTH -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL \
    -I/usr/local/include" AUXLIBS="-L/usr/local/lib \
    -R/usr/local/lib -lsasl"
(for Cyrus SASL version 2.1.1):
% make tidy # if you have left-over files from a previous build
% make makefiles CCARGS="-DUSE_SASL_AUTH -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL \
    -I/usr/local/include/sasl" AUXLIBS="-L/usr/local/lib \
    -R/usr/local/lib -lsasl2"
