If you plan to use SASL just to authenticate postfix, it may be simpler
for you to use dovecot as the authenticator instead.

Otherwise, I managed to authenticate on MySQL with hashed passwords on
sarge and etch, in the past, having SASL authenticating on PAM and PAM
using pam_mysql.so.

Works, but sucks.
